Are you sure about this?

I have tried to reproduce this error without any luck.

Can we work together on identifing the bug?

Cheers, Clive

You mention you cannot reproduce this. I can, although I get
a different msg.

--- snipped from FileZilla log ---
Command: MKD /sdf/
Response: 550 /sdf/: No such file or directory.

--- end snip ---

I get this even if I remove the slash after the directory name.

The FTP server is at Road Runner.
FTP server (BSDI Version 7.00LS) ready.

Other FTP clients are able to do this successfully.

I've tried NcFTPd is a high-performance File Transfer Protocol (FTP)
server for UNIX and every thing works fine!

Must be a Linux problem?


comment:4 by scottdf, 21 years ago

I tried this on a Linux-based site last night and it worked
fine. I still cannot get it to work on the Road Runner site
listed below.

Does it require the last / or not?

It should be MKD /sdf

Thus the method in FileZilla should be changed.

Thanks, Clive for checking this out. Hopefully a fix will be
soon forthcoming.

This bug appear also on LINUX SUZE 6.2

It is only due to the behavior of FTP server wich does not
accept such pathnames ending with / wich are normaly not
