When attempting to open a folder on a remote sftp system, if the folder has a large number of files within, an error is generated and you do not get to review or navigate to that folder.
Below is the command list that is displayed.
Response: Current directory is: "/"
Status: Listing directory /
Status: Calculating timezone offset of server...
Command: mtime "AutomationTest"
Status: Timezone offsets: Server: -18001 seconds. Local: -18000 seconds. Difference: 1 seconds.
Status: Directory listing successful
Status: Retrieving directory listing...
Command: cd "AutomationTest"
Response: New directory is: "/AutomationTest"
Status: Listing directory /AutomationTest
Error: No valid incoming packet found
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
The folder in question can have upwards of some 5000 files at times.
No testing other than emptying the folder in question has been done to learn what that high limit might be.
Perhaps solution in this unusual case would be to only present partial list? or perhaps change to directory, but do not attempt to display entire contents?
If nothing else, being able to navigate to the folder at a minimum is important.
