Encountering Hidden Directories

Reported by: lestermoore Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: lestermoore, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


The problem is we use a hidden unix directory to allow us to share a username/password, yet provide relatively private directories. It achieves the degree of security we require - after all, it is FTP :-)

/pub permissions are 555 (r-xr-xr-x)

/pub/hidden permissions are 711 (rwx--x--x) and it is owned by ROOT

/pub/hidden/whatever permissions are 755 (rwxr-xr-x) and is owned by the ftp account.
This allows me to have full access to /pub/hidden/whatever, but (as intended) doesn't let me view the names of any directories in /pub/hidden.

Anyways, FileZilla seems to get stuck traversing down the directory tree when it gets to /pub/hidden, even though my initial directory is set to /pub/hidden/whatever. If I manually traverse down the tree, it shows the contents of the /pub/hidden as <Empty directory listing> & returns to that listing no matter what subdirectory I enter.

Please let me know if you think this is might be resolved in a future release. I would be happy to test any new version for you.

Please try the most recent beta version of FileZilla 3. If that fails, please post a full log using FZ3 with the debug level set to 3 (see settings dialog).
