Can't see files when connecting via SFTP

Description

When I connect to a server via SFTP using SSH2
FileZilla connects and everything seems wonderful. But
when the connection is done I can't see any files.
Although the message log says "Response: Sucessfully
received 29 items". I've posted the whole message log
further down.

Sometimes I can upload files, but I can't see the file. I
know the file is there because the FTP-account holds
the files for a website (if I upload a picture I can
download an view it via HTTP). I've tried to upload a file
which doesn't already exist in the directory (not
overwriting) I couldn't see the file when it was uploaded.
But I could get it via HTTP and it was there when I
browsed the server internally.

I'm using FileZilla 2.1.1 on WinME with a ISDN-
connection to the internet. I know I have the permissions
to do everything in my account (view, write etc).

Here's the whole message log from a test session when
this problem occured:

Status: Connecting to dakire.mine.nu:2022 ...

Can you please enable "Show raw directory listing" on the
debug page in the settings dialog? Then connect to the server
and post the resulting log.

That's a really strange directory listing, I've not seen
something similar yet. Which OS and filesystem does the
server have? Whithout more information about the used
filesystem, I can't parse this listing.

Here's a part of the ftplog when accessing the server from
within the local network it's part of:

Response: 220 ProFTPD 1.2.4 Server (Kratern.com FTP-server)
[freebsd]

That should tell you the ftp-server program used and the OS.
The serveradmin is not here yet but I'll ask him later, if
you want me to, exacly what OS-version, config and
filesystem the server is using.

When accessing my account internally with FileZilla I have
no problems at all, it goes perfectly well. The problem
comes when accessing the account externally (via the
internet). The server in question (where my account is
found) is tunneled, via a server (*NIX) outside our local
network, to make it available via the internet. I know I
mentioned some of this things before. I just want to be
clear on this points.

I hope I'm not bothering you with my problems. I just want
to make your superb product even better (and of cours solve
my problem :>). Thanks for a great ftp-client! It's the only
one i use. English what I communicate with everyday so I
hope you'll excuse my langauage (I'm Swedish).

So you can see the directoy listing from inside, but not from
outside the local network?
This sounds to me that either the server is misconfigured.
Also, ProFTPD 1.2.4 is an old version, it may be a bug fixed
in newer versions.
Also, it could be possible that the tunnel server somehow
corrupts/modifies the directory listing.
A normal directory listing entry looks like the following:
-rw-r--r-- 1 root other 531 Jan 29 03:26 README

Maybe it would be best to also ask the serveradmin about
this problem.

I have the same problem when connecting via 'Explicit SSL'
using Win2000 client system & proftpd2.1.7rc1. However,
CuteFTP Pro can see all the files! Finally, the debug log
does not show all the files, either! Otherwise, it's a very nice
package...

<<So you can see the directoy listing from inside, but not

I'll have a chat with the serveradmins then. I'm aware of the
unreliability of tunnels, so I understand if it depends on that.
Is there a better alternative, ftp-server, for ProFTPD?

comment:8 Changed 17 years ago by philodemus217

I am experiencing the exact same problem. I am running
VShell 2.1.2 SSH server on Win2K Pro. When I connect with
FileZilla 2.1.3a with "SFTP using SSH2" mode I cannot see
the remote directory list even though FileZilla reports the
directory listing was successful. I get the same result when
connecting locally and from a remote computer. The
filesystem of the server is FAT32 (same result with NTFS).

When I connect using PuTTY's psftp command line client I
can see the directory listing on the server fine.

Here is the FileZilla debug log of the connection:

@philodemus217: The type directory listing VShell sends will
be supported in the next version.
