#7321 new Bug report
Binary instead of ASCII transfer of text files from Windows to Unix servers
|Reported by:||c0reDump||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||Win2k8|
Using a Windows Filezilla (3.4.0) client, transferring ASCII files to Unix based servers (over secure port 22) are transferred as BINARY.
This is the same as reported in ticket #5378.
I understand the developer's argument made in #5378 (the protocol doesn't support it) -- but my request is to have the FileZilla client strip the <control>-M's from the blob before transferring to the server. This is seemingly trivial to implement (look at dos2unix source).
As noted in the other bug report, other clients (such as WinSCP, just tested) are able to transfer these files correctly.
Please reconsider #5378, and fix this bug (even if you want to call it a feature).
