#5024 closed Bug report (rejected)

Trailing spaces in directory name does not work with 'vsftpd' as server

Reported by: Rutger Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: mlds Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version:


Using FileZilla connecting to the popular FTP server vsftpd, we cannot access directories with trailing spaces.

Reading the changelog of 3.2.8rc1 suggested this has been fixed, but it is not.

Digging in deeper in all the tickets revealed that the server needs MLDS support, which vsftpd does not, so this has not been fixed for this case.

Unfortunately without the support of MLSD, whitespace as part of the filename is indistinguishable from padding. As such this cannot possibly be fixed.
