Default Specifying OS

Can you somehow specify a particular OS you are trying to access a server. For instance to access an FTP server service running on a data switch, you need to specify VXworks, for the OS. Automatic will not work.

No you can't, at this time all ftp servers supported by FlashFXP can be auto detected. I've never heard of VXworks before.

In order to provide support I would need to know the full specifics of the format used by VXworks, along with anything special it requires.

VXworks is Wind River's own Version of UNIX. Right now I need to use FTP Pro to accces the data switches because it allows you to specify the exact OS you are trying to start an FTP session to (automatic, Amiga, Macintosh, Unix, Windows, VXworks, etc . . .). It will actually let me form an FTP seesion with the data switch, but If I do not specify the OS that I am trying to form an FTP session with, it will not let me see the actual directories or files of the switch. Only if I specify VXworks will it allow me to do so.

Right, but before FlashFXP can support VXworks we need the specific details on how it works and what makes it different from standard ftp servers. Without the specifics we have no way of supporting it. Unless you can provide me with this information there's not much we can do.
