Novell's FTP server software allows one to access the files on ANY
Novell file server in the directory tree, using this syntax:
When I enter such a path in FileZilla (2.2.10), such as "admin/
groups/registrar", it strips the first '/' character, changing the
string I entered to "/admin/groups/registrar", and as such returns
a '550 invalid path' error.
Another FTP client, NCFtp (www.ncftp.com) had the same issue a
few versions back, but has since been fixed. WS_FTP on Windows,
Fetch and Transmit on Mac OSX, and the command line FTP
program on any Mac/Linux/Windows system all work correctly with
this functionality and do not have this issue.
Please take a look at it. We really like FileZilla, but with that
problem accessing Novell's FTP server, we have to steer clear of it
I can provide a test account to our Novell server if you don't have
one available to test against.
