    Guys i Have searched everywhere and I can't find it (But i read the solution before just don't know where :S) so please bare with me.

    Basically if i have a file/dir with white-spaces pure ftp doesn't show me the file.

    Ie : i like ftp.txt

    doesn' show up in listings in the webbrowser (ie and chrome) or ftp client (Filezilla)

    However if i rename the file to i_like_ftp.txt everything is ok...

    I prefer not to rename around 12450 files :s

    Any thoughts??

    I tested this on my debian 6 development machine and the file with whitespace in the name "New Text Document.txt" is shown in my ftp client (fireftp).

    drwx--x--- 4 web1 client0 4096 Jul  4 10:40 .
    drwxr-x--x 6 web1 client0 4096 Jun 30 17:23 ..

    Thanks for the fast reply.

    I'm also able to see all the files correctly over ssh. but not with ftp clients...

    Has the pure-ftp any cache system for clients for fast browsing for example?

    I can see the files with FTP. I just posted the bssh output too.

    Might be a file permission issue and not related to the whitespace in the filenames. Have you uploaded these files with FTP? If not, then the owner and group might be wrong.
