Description michael fuchs 2007-11-02 00:12:42 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.8)
Installed from:    Ubuntu Packages
OS:                Linux

long usernames are abbriviated by replacing the middle of the username with three dots (...). this shortened username seems to be used for authentication on the ftp-server and of course doesnt match with the password.

Sorry, it IS NOT resolved! I am trying to create an FTP entry to one of hosts managed by CPanel software (they use long usernames like login@servername.com) so the full access URI to the resource looks like login@servername.com@servername.com, but when I try to open it from the remote:/ KIO folder, I always get a shortening, it asks me to login for the username login...com or something like that. 

It works bad also when I try using Konqueror to type that URI directly.

Duplicate means that the bug was already reported, this is why this one was closed. See 150973.
