Unix softlink shows as Windows folder

Reported by: Alastair Forsyth Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: unix soft link Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP SP3


FileZilla build 2009-07-02
Remote OS: SCO Unix 3.2v5.0.6

I created a soft link in Unix (using 'ln -s'):
comms:ttyp6 root > l -og HON*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 164271800 Mar 24 10:21 HONDA.PRN@

Here is resolution file:
comms:ttyp6 root > l -ogWv HON*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 164271800 Mar 24 10:21 HONDA.PRN -> /price/prices/honda.pud

When I tranfer the file to Windows the remote file is shown as a folder.

I.e. the Windows icon is a buff folder rather than the icon for a report file (which is green lines on a white background).

It is impossible to distinguish between symlinks to files and symlinks to directories.
