Error description

  • Environment Info:
    -----------------
    SI Build Number: 5020500
    HotfixVersion ?
    OS: Windows
    
    Problem Statement:
    ---------------------
    FTP Server Adapter configured with a local File system as Base
    directory. When FTP client accessing it via command line, LIST
    (ls) command is case sensitive in windows, while a GET command

    To Reproduce this issue:
    --------------------------
    - Configure an FTP Server Adapter with Base Directory as
    Filesystem (c:/...) but this is the same case in shared drive.
    - Use a FTP Client (Windows command line adapter) to GET files
    with case sensitive and LIST files with case sensitive (as
    shown in the images below).
    
    Observations:
    --------------
    GET command works CASE INSENSITIVE
    LIST (ls) command works CASE SENSITIVE
    
    *Customer wants it to be CASE INSENSITIVE
    
    Expected Behavior:
    ------------------
    FTP commands to be case sensitive (Customer expects FTP Client
    commands to work according to RFC standards)
