feature request: whitespace in front of filename leading whitespace support

#1 Post by buerfent » 2016-08-03 08:32

Hello,
I observe that files which have a whitespace in front of the filename cannot be handled by filezille client.
e.g. " myfile.txt" cannot be deleted or renamed to "myfile.txt"
With e.g. leechFTP renaming of files with leading whitespace is possible.

Make sure to use the latest version of FileZilla. If your are using FTP as protocol, make sure your server supports the MLSD command.

Hello,

Using latest Filezilla (3.20.0) for FTP against vsftpd on RHEL 7, but it seems that MLSD is not supported on my server (also tested with winscp client forcing FTP MLSD getting error). So MLSD is necessary but other clients (leechFTP) seem to work without MLSD.

Then other clients have problems with servers not having a space in front of the filename. Without MLSD there's ambiguity with leading spaces, it's not possible to get it right.
