on my CerberusFTP I activated the “anonymous” login with some shared folders, but I have
NOT checked the option “Display hidden files” on every folder. Nevertheless, everyone can download from hidden subdirectories.
😯October 6, 2004 at 3:27 am #32340 Hidding a file does not restrict someone from downloading it if they know it is there. It simply prevents the directory or file from being sent in a list command.October 7, 2004 at 5:54 am #32341TuxmanParticipant Maybe, but they are “cryptic” filenames that no-one should know.
I don’t believe that they could get the filenames from memory…June 26, 2010 at 8:46 am #32342methosParticipant
Hello, I am using cftp server v126.96.36.199. I have setup a user account in simpe mode and have the ‘display hidden’ option unchecked (deny). Still hidden files and directories are listed with all the other directies and files. Any idea how to fix this?June 27, 2010 at 9:30 am #32343 Hello,
I’ll check into the problem and see if there is a bug.June 27, 2010 at 10:00 am #32344
There is a bug in that the MLSD and MLST command results are not checked for hidden files. The LIST and NLST commands work as expected. I’ve fixed the problem and the next minor release will include the fix.
Thanks,June 28, 2010 at 9:26 pm #32345
In the meantime is there a way to switch to the old LIST command?
We would love to use the hidden file function, too.
It seems it uses MLSD and i couldn’t find an option to switch the listing commands.
Something to force the client to use LIST instead of MLSD, until the update is out?
From the first look and setup cerberus is a far superior ftp solution compared to others.
The usability and clear interface are really great.
And your well guiding htm-faq&help-pages really provide a good help for the first steps.June 28, 2010 at 10:08 pm #32346
Thanks for the positive comments on the product. We do strive to make the server easy to setup and intuitive to operate.
There is no option to force LIST behavior in Cerberus – it is entirely a client function. However, we will probably be releasing the update with the fix tomorrow. I can provide a BETA release tonight if you need the fix immediately.June 28, 2010 at 11:06 pm #32347
You sir are the best feature of this ftp server
Thanks for the option, but tomorrow is more than fine.June 30, 2010 at 12:47 am #32348
could you provide the patch including this fix ?
thank you very muchJune 30, 2010 at 1:07 am #32349
If you can’t wait for the official release then you can download the BETA from
The BETA includes the fix and is probably going to be the same as the release version.June 30, 2010 at 10:59 pm #32350
