How to make a "blind drop"?

Postby Andreas WP » Tue Oct 22, 2013 1:29 pm

We have changed our old Proftpd server to Wing ftp on Linux. Now I have problem to set up a "blind drop", an account for dropping files but not to see anything. I have unchecked "Directory access, list".
When using web GUI or filezilla it works fine.
The problem is when using Cyberduck as a client, it got a popup message that says: 550 Cannot MLSD. No permission.
I only want an empty directory list back with no errors.
It is not possible to do a work around with changing rights on the map because wftpserver is running as root.
I have tried to enable directory read and use cron to move away the files to another directory every minute. It works but then the wsftpserver cannot stat the filesize after finnish because the file has moved away.

Are there any way to set it up working smoothly?

If you disable the "file list" permission, the server side of course will return such message "550 Cannot MLSD. No permission.", if the ftp client can't handle the upload after listing, it is the client's issue, and I suggest you use Filezilla for file transfer.
