Is there any way of getting iFTP to show dotfiles (eg .htaccess) so that they can be [up|down]loaded? I need to do this for some directories on one of my client sites.
I have looked into the ftp.lr & options.sgml files, but cannot see if this is actually supported!

It used to work. It's probably just an issue with the list command. I'll do some tests over the next few days and see what I can come up with.

it would be good to have the "dot files" display as an option which can be turned off. in fact, the one reason i use iftp is because i can upload folders from my SVN working directory without worrying about .svn folders getting uploaded.

Great little program.
If I could only see my dot files, which besides for .htaccess I use to secure my sqlite .db files.
On my server this only requires to add the -a command to list (LIST -a).
If it can do that, this program will be on my USB stick.

Cheers, jan

It used to do "LIST -a", I wonder what happened. I'll have a look at it.
