I have an FTP server on my network (currently ran on IIS). When I connect with Nautilus to FTP and try to delete folder (files delete works) I get error.
I tried Filezilla and Gnome-Commander as clients - they cat delete directories just fine. I tried to solve this problem for months because I like the convenience of having my FTP bookmarked in Nautilus and use it from there.
Today I finally found a reason for Nautilus not being able delete directories, but I can't find a solution to that.
I've checked FTP logs and saw that all working ftp-clients are performing RMD on directory name only, while Nautilus always prepends directory name by / symbol.
So, let's say I'm trying to delete folder call "Test". Filezilla and Gnome-Commander are logged as doing RMD on "Test", but Nautilus was logged as doing RMD on "/Test" and server replied that "/Test" folder doesn't exist.
When I bookmarked FTP in Nautilus, I've tried to set "Folder" option to nothing, but Nautilus overwrites it to "/" folder anyway, thus always prepending folder with / when doing RMD.
Are there any ways to surpass this Nautilus limitation?
