#4740 closed Bug report (rejected)
Filezilla doesn't understand Unix soft link

Further to #4706, I believe than one CAN distinguish between links and files. May I suggest you consult manual for 'find' command? The primary test 'type' covers it.
I have created 2 links, jim and fred. As you can see from the following screen dump file type 'd' designates a directory.
comms:ttyp4 root > l -dog fred jim
drwxrwxr-x 3 37376 Aug 13 11:32 fred@
-rw-r--r-- 1 12 Aug 13 11:48 jim@
comms:ttyp4 root > l -dogWv fred jim
drwxrwxr-x 3 37376 Aug 13 11:32 fred -> ../another_directory
-rw-r--r-- 1 12 Aug 13 11:48 jim -> jim.txt
Once Filezilla has established the Unix type of the resolution file it should be straightforward to recreate the equivalent in Windows.

Doesn't change the fact that using the FTP protocol there is no way to distinguish between symlinks to files and symlinks to directories and symlinks pointing to nowhere.
