Locale problem with iFS FTP server

3004 Member Posts: 204,171 Green Ribbon
There is also a problem with the FTP server when using a Windows locale other than English.

It seems that the FTP server formats its directory list output according to the locale, which is not compatible with most FTP client software.

At least Internet Explorer and CuteFTP as well as FrontPage will fail, when the locale is not English.

A cure would be to make the FTP server always use English month abbreviations when formatting the dates.

A workaround is to change the Windows locale to English, but this is not desirable since we're in Finland :-) (Makes other software break / act wrong.)
