FTP client doesn't show me .htaccess files

Hi there.
When I'm uploading .htaccess files on my server, then FTL client doesn't show me that files. Could you please explain me why it is happening? In fact it was the main reason why I migrated from standart Internet Explorer build in FTP client to Smart FTP, but now I realized that this is happening on Smart FTP also. How can I fix it? Is it limitation of this FTP client? Thanks.

Hello ..

Make sure you have the [x] Show All Files option in the FTP -> Transfer -> Directory Options enabled. This will add the -a to the LIST command. However if the server does not include the .htaccess in the directory listing the FTP is unable to display it.
