Good Morning FileZilla team,

I am contacting you on behalf of Amcrest ( support team and in order to request a feature to be added to your FileZilla Server.

We would like to ask for FileZilla server to allow the client (in this case a surveillance camera) to retrieve server file structure and capacity from any type of disconnection recovery.

Please let me know if you have any further inquiry regarding this request.

Best Regards,

from any type of disconnection recovery.

What does that mean?

Hey there,

This will reference to a client disconnection and re-connection from/to the server. In our case could be a camera reboot, power outage, etc...

Thank you!

Well, every FTP client can simply reconnect if the connection is lost for whatever reason.

Enumerating the file and directory structure on the server is also something every client can easily do using by obtaining listings through MLSD, parsing their output and acting on the results, recursively traversing the directory hierarchy in the process.

Obtaining capacity information is not possible, not only does the protocol not provide this capability, capacity also varies on far too many factors that make this information too unreliable to be of any use.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
