#882 closed Bug report

unable to access directories with leading/trailing spaces

Reported by: shagzomatic Owned by: Alexander Schuch

Description

It appears that if someone has created a directory on
an ftp server with a leading or trailing space in the
directory name (i.e. " directoryname" or "directoryname
"), the FileZilla client (Windows, v2.2.13c) is unable
to descend into that directory. I believe this to be
an issue with the client rather than the server since I
am unable to duplicate this issue with gftp under Linux
or coreftp under Windows.

Logs on the server side look like FileZilla is
stripping the leading / trailing spaces off the file
names (directories in test below are named " leading
space" and "trailing space ":

client -side logs are attached.

The server this was discovered with is a Linux machine
running proftpd. I can provide test login credentials
if needed.

Hi,
The problem is also present for filenames leading with a
space.
