Filezilla considers a text file like a directory

Reported by: iccaro Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP2


Version: Filezilla cliente 3.1.5

Local operating system: Windows Xp SP2

Description: We have some text files named *.RAW in a server. When I open the directory where they are placed, Filezilla consider these files like directories. The icon corresponds to a directory. When I try to drag and drop a file (to get one of these files), I cannot do it. The log is the following:

Command: CWD file.RAW
Response: 550 file.RAW: A parameter must be a directory.
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

If I make "double click" in one of these files (as I it was a directory) the response is the following:

Command: RETR file.RAW
Response: 150 Opening data connection for file.RAW (768870 bytes).
Response: 226 Transfer complete.

With other ftp clients it works.

Furthermore, we have other servers with this type of files, and they work properly.

The directory entry is a symbolic link. Unfortunately symbolic links can point to both directories and files and there's no way to distinguish them, that's why they always appear as directories.

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

The link discovery heuristic will work for drag & drop in the next version.
