Default removal of illegal unix characters

Hmmm

I quite often ul large libraries of rom zips ...

ie lotsa small zips , that has been named /renamed by sweet utilities ..

Problem is I run Win32 .. and when I set a dir of these zips on ul to a unix machine .. some zip names are not allowed due to illegal characters ..

ie spaces ! & ´ '

Can flashfxp be made to autochange/autoremove these on ul ?

so _Tony_hawk's_ gets ul:d as _Tony_hawks_ ?

question: why setting the dirs to a unix machine ? and what kind of unix ? only simulated unix like in serv-u or a real unix/linux machine ?

JensB, there are littererarily no filenames unix won't eat, as long as you either encapsulate the filename in " or pre-pend the "illegal chars" with \.

its really not the zipscript..glftpd has the option to disable/enable what it will accept in its config file. if the server really wants you to upload those files, you need to have them modify their glftpd config to accomodate...this really isn't a client issue
