Folder Shortcuts Appear as Both Folders and .lnk Files

Description (last modified by Tim Kosse)

I'm using FileZilla Server 0.9.33 downloaded on 12/7/2009 (although the server interface reports it as 0.9.33 BETA) on Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and FileZilla client on Windows Vista x64 Home Premium.

I was trying to access UNC's defined to the server, but I couldn't get it to work as defined in the forum sticky, and there was no response on the forums. So I thought about it, and decided a shortcut in the Home directory might work. And it did.

However, the shortcut appears in the client as both a folder and a .lnk file. The folder works as expected. The .lnk file can be downloaded. I also tested using Firefox 3.5.5 as the client, and both the folder and the .lnk file appear there, too. So I suspect this is a problem with the server.

I suggest that shortcuts appear only as the objects they link to. In my case, I should only see the folder in the client. In the case of a linked file, only the destination file should be seen.

Perhaps this should be an option in the server settings. But at a minimum, the .lnk itself should not be seen in the client, only the destination.
