Changing LIST to DIR in Fetch (4 posts)

    Hello, I'm working with an SFTP server that doesn't like the LIST command that Fetch uses to get the contents of a directory. I know this as I have manually SFTP'd into it using a terminal and it just says bad command when I try and LIST. It is happy with DIR. Does anyone know of a way to convince fetch to send DIR rather than LIST or any other fix that might help. I have to access files lots off this server and would rather use Fetch.
    Cheers

    Hi,

    We'd like to see a transcript from Fetch where the LIST command doesn't work with this server to help diagnose the problem.

    After you connect to the server and either get an error message or don't get a file list, could you please choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message?

    We'll take a look and try to figure out what's going on.

    Thanks,

    My apologies - I have solved this problem myself. By changing to the parent directory (by cmd-clicking the menu bar) I got a file list and then re-opening the initial directory I got the file list I wanted. The transcript no longer seems to be sending LIST commands, but it definitely was before when I flagged the problem. Now it sends SSH2_FXP_READDIR style commands. Now I can't make the problem come back. Thanks for taking the time to respond anyway.
