#3503 closed Bug report

Display issues on win server using \ rather than /

FileZilla used to display fine when I connected to this server. I haven't connected in several months, and now the display tree for the server isn't displaying correctly. FileZilla no longer seems to treat a back slash as a directory separator for display purposes. Actual functionality still seems to work correctly, so it is only a display issue. See the attached screenshot, as it shows the situation much better than words can describe. FYI, I am using FileZilla Client

You are using Windows Vista?

comment:2 by Tim Kosse, 16 years ago

You have an exotic server that uses backslashes instead of slashes as separator. Almost all servers use slashes as separator and on most, backslashes can be a valid component of file and directory components.

Fixing this would require a lot of work for limited use. Please upgrade to a proper server.

In response to ci-dev, the client is running on Windows Vista. I don't know what the server is running, as it isn't my server, just one to which I connect to upload files to a client's hosting company. I don't know if the bug is new in the last several builds of the client, or if the server software changed in the last few months, but it used to display properly when connecting to this server. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the server information other than the address, login, and welcome message. I know it is a web server that is running IIS.
