I just installed your server to test it, but I saw into the log file:

===
255.255.255.255 (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session opened.
255.255.255.255 (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - USER raffaeles: Login successful.
255.255.255.255 (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - raffaeles chdir("/"): No such file or directory
255.255.255.255 (localhost[127.0.0.1]) - FTP session closed.
===

every time I log in.

I identified the problem relaying into the "/" mount into the virtual file system of CygWin not being set to user level but only to machine level.

I assume that the process, after the user authentication, cannot read from

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Cygnus Solutions/Cygwin/mounts v2"

but only from

"HKEY_USERS/S-1-5-21-*****/SOFTWARE/Cygnus Solutions/Cygwin/mounts v2"

Is there a way to automatically set that key when enabling the user to log on with your FTP server?

Thanks,

We had another recent report of this problem but have been unable to repeat it on any of our machines, so we have not yet resolved it.

Can you please confirm that the problem is resolved when you add the registry entry under the user's key? And, if you don't mind, also confirm that the problem comes back when you remove this registry entry again. That would be really helpful.

If you are confident of this we will add code to do what you suggested and send you a test version.

Thanks a lot,
Hans

Yes, I can confirm.

I'm confident, and I'd be at disposal to try a test version of the product. I'm pretty skilled on PC stuff ;)

I sent you a mail with the address you can use to send me the test version as you requested.

Please note that out mail server will reject any .Zip or executable file as attachment, so I ask you to kindly use other compression tools (RAR, as an example) or simply rename the file (.ex_ or .zi_ as an example)

Thanks for your support,

A pre-release of edtFTPD 0.9.3b is currently (4 October 04) available from http://www.enterprisedt.com/tmp/edtFTPDsetup.exe.

Amongst other things, it contains a new attempt to fix this stubborn problem. We would be very grateful if anyone who is having this problem downloads this pre-release and lets us know how it goes.

Thanks,
- Hans (EDT Support)
