FTP/UnixStyle Registry Key
The specification for the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) does not specify the
format for directory listings. Originally the detail was only for display
and could be in the systemís native format. There are two generally used
layouts. Systems based on the Windows operating system provide an MS-DOS
style listing while most others provide a Unix format. JANOS provides the
MS-DOS style by default.
FTP clients typically now need to interpret the listing for graphical display
and tracking of directory/folder content. Most client programs will detect
the formatting and process the content as needed. Other clients might expect
one style or the other.
If an FTP client has difficulty retrieving the directory listing from the
FTP Server you may set this Registry Key to enabled. The FTP Server will
then supply the Unix formatted directory listing when requested.
