WireShark capture of connect:

I created a profile for this server with type "VxWorks".
the remote directory listing does not appear - no matter if I set a remote startupdir (Standard-Verzeichnis auf Server)

hint: the connection with a simple ftp client works fine. I can do a CD / or CD /RFA/
/RFA/ is the chrooted root directory! there is no way of changing to /RFA (!)

VxWorks is a horribly broken platform. Not only do they use totally custom filesystem structure and listing format, it also changes from release to release.

Did you try setting the server type to all of the other available options yet?

VxWorks is a horribly broken platform.

could you be more specific please.

yes, with the default settings it works just fine.

so, I suppose the servertype is for parsing the directory listing .. but
why is FileZilla trying to parse the PWD output from the server? it never gets used except perhaps for showing the user.
I know of ftp-servers where the users is in a chrooted env. and PWD shows the entire path (like my dslbox) but is unable to change to / . he would have to use the name of the rootdir, the server submitted after login.

Different VxWorks systems use different path syntax. The more broken ones don't use the "/path/with/segments/separated/by/slashes/" syntax.

The path needs to be parsed for navigating the server.
