Hi,

I have a problem with my ftp server.
I get this error for my ftp server if I try it to integrate it in XBMC:

13:08:32 T:5200 ERROR: XFILE::CDirectory::GetDirectory - Error getting ftp://test:test%24@ip:10815/?auth=ssl/
13:08:32 T:5200 ERROR: CGUIMediaWindow::GetDirectory(ftp://test:test%24@ip:10815/?auth=ssl/) failed

config:
<music>
<default>Main Music Collection</default>
<source>
<name>Main Music Collection</name>
<path>ftp://test:test$@ip:10815?auth=ssl/</path>
</source>
</music>

Over flashfxp and all other programm the ftp server the connection works fine. Do I need an extra addon for ftp over ssl? Or can XBMC not handle secure ftp connections?

Please help me Smile

Thanks

afaik this is not supported (and imo uncommon too). Most people use ssh for secure file sources...

Can you not use https?
http(s)://username:password@domain.com:443//folder/subfolder/file.mp4

Or maybe make it a webdav network drive?
