I use WinSCP to view a file system over FTP.
Most of the time, I only wish to view files on the file system - but I do occasionally need to modify or delete files.
Is there a setting in WinSCP (or any other common Windows FTP clients) that can let me choose whether to access an FTP file system with read-only or read-write permissions.
This will allow me to avoid any accidental changes to the FTP file system.
If I'm asking the question in the wrong way, apologies - I guess the most general phrasing is "how can I view an FTP file system without write permissions?" But I am pretty tied to WinSCP, so the ideal is a solution involving that.
