#1960 closed Feature request

Not able to upload files to directory

Operating system version:


Running FileZilla 221b
Connecting to FTP Server that is using VShell.

users with certain access correctly see a folder for
say... uploads and they cannot browse anywhere else.
This functionality is correct for that group policy. The
home folder is set to this location for these users via
VShell. The user sees the root folder and only this
upload folder. The group rights are set so that the user
can upload to directory but cannot request a directory
listing. The process is intended for a blind upload.

Cannot "PUT" files into the folder because ls/list/dir
commands are blocked to users with this type of
access. Why does FileZilla need to list directory to issue
the put command (i.e. put <filename> ...c:\windows)
Is there a way to execute "PUT" without FileZilla listing
the target directory contents or issuing an ls command?

Sample of problem:
(this done by right clicking and selecting upload because
drag and drop does not work)

Status: Connected
Status: Starting upload of Z:\Downloads
Command: CD /Public:/
Response: Remote working directory is now
Command: PUT services Z:\Downloads FALSE
Response: Public:/services: permission denied
Error: Upload failed
Status: Starting upload of Z:\Downloads
Command: LIST
Response: Sucessfully received 1 items
Status: Directory listing successful

A first beta version of FileZilla 2.2.2 is available from
It should fix your problem.
