asked on

xamp and filezilla ftp

I have an installation of FileZilla up and running on my windows 7 64 bit system
The server is running fine and I can log into it using web and ftp clients
I have set up users with relevant shares pointing to my mapped drives on the computer
These shares are on a Buffalo NAS box
These mapped drives are completely accessible for file copy and downloading using the windows interface (explorer etc), and for all programs needing access to them

The problem is that when I use a ftp client to log into the ftp server, the login works fine but the folders in the share are not visible at all
If I use the C Drive on the local computer as a share then all folders are visible

Can someone please explain what is going on please

In filezilla you can only select drives / folders already mapped
You cannot add a folder using a UNC path
maybe I should add the filezilla  ftp logon user name to the Buffalo as a share user ?
