VMS connection doesn't work

Reported by: njall Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: njall, Tim Kosse, juergenf

Operating system version:


Connected successfully to a VMS system running VMS 7.2
and UCX 5.3 I see no directory listing. The "Dump
Directory Cache" file looks like this:

FileZilla Directory Cache Dump

Dumping 1 cached directories

Entry 1:
Server: ningersoll@…:21, type: 256
Directory contains 0 items:

This is my root directory and there are a lot of files
and directories. An "ls" from Windows FTP shows lots
of files. Occassionally I see garbled VMS directory
info. The debug file I have attached shows another
version of the "Directory Cache".

the directory contents, please send me another message log
(the cache contents are of no use in this case)

Yes indeed, disabling "Show Hidden Files" corrects the
problem. Thank you! The filetype field isn't quite right.

Apparently the VMS method of "backups", i.e. file versions,

is confusing the code. I will submit that as a seperate

You can reopen this report if the issue still exists in the
