Subject RE: [VFS] FTP Sending LIST while in binary mode
Date Wed, 15 Feb 2006 12:29:34 GMT
Ok, thanks for your answer.
The FTP server I need to connect to is strictly compliant with RFC 959. I quote an extract
for the LIST command specification:
"...The data transfer is over the data connection in type ASCII or type EBCDIC. (The user
must ensure that the TYPE is appropriately ASCII or EBCDIC)..."
I guess most FTP servers work correctly even if the mode is binary, but this one doesn't.
Another possibility would be to set all transfers to ASCII for this FTP connection (as the
files I need to transfer are in ASCII), but I don't think that is possible with the current
version of VFS.
Thanks
Guillermo Vasconcelos

I never heard nor seen this behavior. I asked at commons-dev if there is
someone who knows more details about it.

Unhappily there is no workaround now.
