FTP with Windows Explorer

Having trouble connecting to PFC200 FW19 using FTP in Windows Explorer.

it connects as root / wago but it appears it can only access /root folder. I would like to browse the complete file system as root, but it’s missing the ussual . and … links to navigate the file system.

Any idea why this might be happening? I know this worked in the past but appears ftp has restricted file access now.

it is a windows thing. It maps ftp server like a disk drive. Main folder for root is /root so you are stuck with this and can’t go upper. You can edit /etc/passwd file and change the root folder eg:
(now when you log in as root you go to / - root directory :smiley: )
