Directory Listing with XFTP

 
Hi all,

I try to use xftp similar as AbsoluteFTP.

The problem is that xftp use a

LIST -a

and AbsoluteFTP & Curl only

LIST
.

With LIST -a I dont't get the directory Listing.
When I execute the 'Commands->RAW Commands' in xftp I get the directory listing.

Where in xftp can I change the default list command?

Thanks for your help.
BR
Aleks

Re: Directory Listing with XFTP

 
Directory listing is not shown on Session Log because that information is shown in the remote pane.

And, LIST and LIST -a, they both display folder listings. The only different

Are you having problems listing folders on Xftp?

If so, what is your FTP server and its version?

Re: Directory Listing with XFTP

 
When Xftp session initially starts, it uses LIST –a to retrieve directory information but does not provide the directory list on session log. Because this information (folders/files) is represented in the Remote pane graphically.

I am not sure about the problem you are experiencing. Could you describe your problem in detail one more time?

Re: Directory Listing with XFTP

 
The output from the server with

LIST -a

and

LIST

is different.

LIST -a
###
.
..
dir01
dir02
...
dirnn
###

list
###
drwx------ 3 USER GROUP 36864 Jan 31 10:57 DIR01
....
drwx------ 4 USER GROUP 8192 May 31 2010 DIRnn
###

Could the problem be that LIST -a does not send the full directory listing?
