Set default ftp folder / Change directory [message #1058974] Thu, 16 May 2013 02:11 Go to next message

I just installed RSE on Eclipse Juno, so pardon the noob question.

I created a connection to my ftp server (which runs Windows IIS, btw). The way the ftp server is set up, there are no directories physically located within the root folder, instead they are virtual mapping. To access them, users have to cwd manually after the connection or supply the directory name during connection.

ftp ftp.myserver.com/mydir
-- or --
ftp ftp.myserver.com
cwd mydir


I don't see any option is RSE to accomplish the same; I can't use the first format in the connection properties nor do I see any option to send the cwd command manually.

Help?

Once you are connected, create a filter for the desired folder:

Right-click the Files subsystem, New > Filter

Then enter the desired path on the remote. This allows users to easily maintain _multiple_ "default folders" == filters on the remote.

No, that did not work.

As I mentioned, the sub-directory 'mydir' is a virtual folder in IIS' ftp site. Therefore, a CWD will and does work (from a command line ftp). The filter option that you mention gives the error 'file not found'. I suspect this is becuase RSE is attempting to get the directory using the LIST command and then trying to filter the result. As the 'mydir' sub-directory is not physically there and doesn't appear in the LIST response, hence the error.
