Subject Re: AW: Trouble deleting hidden files using ftp task
Date Wed, 24 Nov 2004 22:10:16 GMT
It turns out that the problem was not due to the ftp task but due to the ftp 
server that I use. In its default configuration hidden files are not returned 
when one issues a LIST or a NLST command to the ftp server. After changing 
this default behavior the problem was solved.

In case anyone is interested, the ftp server that I use is ProFTPD. In order 
to show hidden files the following must be added to /etc/proftpd.conf

<Global>
ListOptions "-a"
</Global>

Best regards
