    Post Truncated filenames/directories with Meterpreter?

    Hi guys,

    Just a quick question.

    When using Meterpreter and entering the 'ls' command, I get the files and directories displayed correctly in full. However, if I want to change directories, upload or download any files, I have to enter the truncated equivalent

    Test Document.doc would be Testdo~1.doc.


    Is there a way to turn this option off or is it simply how Meterpreter works?


    Appreciate any feedback =)

    Sounds like it doesn't understand LFN and only understands 8.3 notation.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Hey thanks,

    I poked around with bits and pieces but didn't solve it. I found just typing the filename with "xyz" speechmarks solves the problem.

    =)
