#4403 closed Bug report (outdated)

Receiving "Response: 550 Failed to open file." on certain file names

The unix file system that our FTP server runs on allows for some very terribly named files.

Although some FTP programs allow these names, FileZilla seems to have an issue with some.

When attempting to download the file called "test33_PRHP01ELIG.TXT\ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ \ "

This happens:

Status: Starting download of /nfs/lan/temp00/ora_utl/test33_PRHP01ELIG.TXT
Command: MDTM test33_PRHP01ELIG.TXT
Response: 550 Could not get file modification time.
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (10,50,3,200,28,141)
Command: RETR test33_PRHP01ELIG.TXT
Response: 550 Failed to open file.
Error: Critical error

I fully understand that this is a terrible file name. However, some programs are able to handle it. So I ask, why can't FileZilla? It's way better than anything else!

I'm using FileZilla

Are there really backslashes in the filename or are you just using them to escape spaces for the visual representation here?
