Re: Access of FTP directories having only x permission

Hello, Michael!

Via vfs you access a ftp directory e.g. PUBDIR and in this directory
there is an other one e.g. MISC, but that directory MISC has permissions
set for others/world only as "--x".

Normally if you know an exact filename in above described directory MISC
then in command line ftp clients you can access the file.  How can this
be done with mc too?

For some reason I prefer to use mc for it.  Thanks in advance.

You didn't give any reasons why you prefer to do it in mc.  You can add a
wget command to the menu.  The mc manual describes the syntax of the menu.  
In particular, you may need to use %D - the directory name of the
unselected panel.

If you want to use the mc VFS to get the file, then you probably need to
modify the "copy" dialog to ask for the source file.  If it's a text file,
you can use "Open file..." in the editor.
