vsftpd - Linux / Unix Administration

Does anyone know if vsftpd can be configured to return the filename when the anonymous user types "ls <file name>" without making the directory readable? I believe that wuftpd, by default, returns the file name if the anonymous user types "ls foo.bar", if foo.bar exists. This is the behaviour even though "ls" alone returns nothing.

    Default vsftpd

    Does anyone know if vsftpd can be configured to return the filename
    when the anonymous user types "ls <file name>" without making the
    directory readable?

    I believe that wuftpd, by default, returns the file name if the
    anonymous user types "ls foo.bar", if foo.bar exists. This is the
    behaviour even though "ls" alone returns nothing.

    However, in vsftpd, unless the directory is readable, both "ls" and
    "ls foo.bar" return nothing.

    Our users have created scripts that check to see if the file has been
    uploaded by issuing "ls <file name>". With wuftpd, when it returned
    the filename, they knew the file had been uploaded. Now, with vsftpd,
    it always appears to have not yet been uploaded.

    Any advice?

    Thanks.

    Default vsftpd

    Please forgive me if this ends up posted twice.....

    Does anyone know if vsfptd can be configured so that "ls <file name>"
    returns the file name if the file name exists?

    I believe that wuftpd, by default, returns "foo.bar" when "ls foo.bar"
    is issued if foo.bar exists. This behaviour occurs even though "ls"
    alone returns nothing and the directory is not readable.

    The only way I can get vsftpd to return the file name is if the
    directory is readable. And, of course, then "ls" returns the names of
    all files in the directory.

    Thank you for any help.
