FTP: If server denies directorylisting, then no upload is possible

Severity: normal Keywords: FTP upload files when directory listing is denied
Cc: Architecture: Intel
Platform: Mac OS X 10.5


Hi all,

For security reasons, our company is running a FTP server, that denies directory listing. People need to "know" which filename they want to download, after the upload.

The use case is an internal file sharing platform, where you use FTP for uploading and then something like for downloading.

When I was using a PC, using Windows, multiple FTP clients had no problem with the fact, that they were not allowed browsing the directory listing. They just uploaded the file.

Now I migrated to Mac and found Cyberduck:

Using Cyberduck it seems to me, that due to the fact, that the FTP server denies dirctory listing and file browsing, the whole upload is marked as "failed" (and also it seems, that the file is not uploaded).

Best regards
