#3057 closed Bug report

SFTP cannot cd to //host/share

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


I run a cygwin sshd at home to allow SSH/SFTP access.

In a interactive SSH session I can do "cd host/share"
to go to my nas. But with FileZilla I can not do this,
because the '
' is changed to a single slash.

Does it work using PuTTY's psftp?

comment:3 by ffes, 17 years ago

psftp has no problem with it. See below

C:\>psftp localhost
login as: Frank
Using username "Frank".
Remote working directory is /home/Frank
psftp> cd expbox/nas
Remote directory is now
psftp> ls
Listing directory expbox/nas

Oops. Messed the status, I think :-S

Adding support for this in 3.0.11, you can also try the upcoming 2008-06-11 build from

Please note that since host/share syntax conflicts with standard POSIX semantics (treat multiple slashes as a single one), you need to explicitly select Cygwin as server type in the site manager.
