    Fine. Listing them is one thing. Now try to GET one of them.

    SMS.

    But this is a VMS issue. VMS tells the remote system a file named

    ˆ._mozillaˆ.com.7 is available

    Back on VMS:

    > $ dir ^._mozilla^.com.7
    > Directory USRDIR:[JFMEZEI]
    > ^._mozilla^.com.7;1



    type ^._mozilla^.com.7;1 does succeed


    I don't understand why Mozilla would filter out lowercase file names.
    Perhaps they realise they are dealing with VMS and expect only legacy
    file names.

    But I understand why you wouldn't be able to handle funky file names
    with the ˆ in them because the FTP server itself has difficulty.

    Have you tried this against any other FTP server, or just HP's?
