Description Florian Schirmer 2001-06-04 05:20:55 EDT
Using the internal-ls breaks (at least) IE and WS-FTP. Both clients wont 
show files beginning with a dot. (.htaccess, .bash_history, ...)

So either disable the internal-ls or find a fix (preffered) for it :-)

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-06-26 13:22:54 EDT
Why do you think this is a bug?
dot-files are by definition hidden files, so if you want to see them, pass the 
-a parameter to ls. (Yes, the rule applies for ftp ls, as well).
Comment 2 Florian Schirmer 2001-06-28 11:29:18 EDT
Well it isn't really a bug. But the default with internal-ls is not to show the 
hidden files while without internal-ls they get listed. This is bad IMHO. 
People using IE or WS-FTP have no chance to isse a LIST command with the -a 
param. So if you ask me -a should be the default.

Please use vsftpd, wu-ftpd is not maintained anymore.
