case sensitivity of network shares

Reported by: iD Owned by:

Keywords: sftp, expandrive, case sensitive Cc:

Description

filezilla server version: 0.9.25 & 0.9.32
expandrive (http://www.expandrive.com/windows) 1.8.3

i started with filezilla server 0.9.25 (had an old installation).
i was trying to share a folder mounted with expandrive (remote sftp share) with filezilla server. I was able to select the share in windows without a problem, full directory structure visible.

when a client connected to my ftp, there were only lowercase folders visible on that share, files were showing regardless of their case.

so i thought it would be a filezilla server problem and upgraded my installation. now, it is not showing any folders inside that on ftp at all. the local view in filezilla client works fine.

i tried a different ftp server software, which works flawlessly, but i would like to continue using filezilla server.

FileZilla Server does not do anything unusual, it simply uses the FindFile family of functions to enumerate directory contents.
Since expandrive is proprietary closed source software the burden of proof is on their end, I cannot possibly analyze this problem any further without being able to debug all involved programs.
