Directory Traversing Problem on VxWorks

Reported by: sbosanquet Owned by: Tim Kosse
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: sbosanquet, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:



I am using the new snapshot of FileZilla and i have a
problem. The "UP" directory now works but i have
another problem in that as soon as i use it i cannot then
get into any folder i have not previously been in to.

Looking at it, there seems to be a problem with
the /:sd:/ I am not sure if it is being stored twice or
something but if i delete it from the Remote Site bar i
can then travel into directories manually.

Also, it seems when you go down a level from the root
directory and then go back, when you next try and go
down a level it fails becasue it is trying to enter :sd:/:sd:

I have attached a copy of my debug logs.

The problem is that FileZilla does not support the
filesystem structure of your server.
What are the characteristics of this FS? From the logs I
found out this:

  • path separator is /
  • mandatory prefix before first path segment
  • prefix is a series of letters enclosed by colons (:<letter>*:)

Is this information correct?

Unfortunately I cannot fix this problem in FileZilla 2, as
the code is not flexible enough, but it won't be hard to add
support for your server to FileZilla 3.

Sidenode: I'm always surprised by all these strange
filesystem structures, why aren't they all as simple and
intuitive as the one used in Linux? Even the Windows
filesystem is way too complicated...
