    Hi

    I noticed that on using 4NT 8.02.106, that on being connected to a FTP site, pressing Tab completes filenames and directories - great !!!

    But using TCC 9.02, this does not happen, I get a beep :-(
    Have I overlooked some configuration option that gets this back?
    Was this feature removed? If so - doubleplusungood :-(

    Cheers

    It has not been removed, and it still works fine here.

    What is the exact syntax you're using? And does it happen on all ftp sites?

    1. I think so. What I discover is that Tab matching works if the subdirectory is off the root, it does not work if it is deeper than that (a subdirectory off a subdirectory).

    For example, I type

    cd ftp:D

    (cursor is at the end of this, press TAB and see

    cd "ftp:Data/"

    which is correct

    2. There is subdirectory call trptaunton off Data, and case matters
    If I do

    cd ftp:t
    cd "ftp:t"
    cd ftp:t*
    cd "ftp:t*"

    I just get beeps.
    With 4NT 8.02, it matches any of these and I see on pressing TAB

    cd "ftp:trptaunton"/

    Thanks

    I haven't followed this thread, but something strange happens here too.

    v:\> iftp ftp://lucky.syr.edu

    v:\> cd ftp:4plugins

    v:\> cd ftp:
    /4plugins

    After that, if I

    v:\> dir ftp:<Tab>

    it completes filenames in /, not filenames in /4plugins (though if I just "dir
    ftp:" if shows the contents of /4plugins).

    Fixed for build 153 (which will be released in 2-3 days). (It turned
    out to be a server-specific issue that was a combination of account
    access privileges & server configuration; I couldn't reproduce it here
    but was able to duplicate it on Vince's server.)

    I can repro it on the jpsoft server. After

    v:\> iftp jpsoft.com
    v:\> cd ftp:beta
    v:\> cd ftp:
    /beta

    v:\> ftp:<Tab> turns into

    v:\> "ftp:4dos"/

    Which is because you lack privileges on the jpsoft server.

    It happens on an out-of-the-box Linux too. Try

    iftp barnyard.syr.edu

    cd ftp:pub/vefatica

    cd ftp:<Tab>

    It completes to "ftp:pub/" (which does not exist inside vefatica).
