Problems with Cgywin SFTP Servers

Reported by: woakesd Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Unknown
Keywords: Cc: woakesd, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


When connecting to an SFTP server (SSH-2.0-
OpenSSH_3.0.2p1) distributed by cygwin the remote file
names were not displayed but instead the permissions
were displayed. More recent builds of cygwin servers
are ok. I connected using sftp and the file list returned
by a dir command looked no different.

Have you tried connecting with FileZilla 2.0.0 beta 6? This
problem should have been fixed.
If it still does not work, please enable "Show raw directory
listing" in the debug settings and post the messagelog here.

My apologies for not making myself clearer, I was initially
using 1.9.9a but after submitting this i installed 2.0 beta 6
and the problem is still there. The raw directory listing was
from V2 beta 6.

Thanks for the log. This is a bug in SSH-2.0-
OpenSSH_3.0.2p1, it is missing one important information in
the directory listing: The day of a month a file when the file
was last modified.
FileZilla can't handle this type of directory listing correctly. It
tries to get at least some data out of the directory listing, but
not very sucessful.
If possible, please upgrade to a newer version of the server.
Some of the newer versions still have bugs, but FileZilla can
handle those without problems.
