When I checked the communications between the server and client on the Windows
FTP server, I also get the exact same problem with the line following 
> 257 "/" is current directory.
> CWD /" is current directory/

But I could get it to work by adding '%2F' to the address, which is the ASCII
forward slash. So the address "ftp://hostname/path/filename" becomes
"ftp://hostname/%2Fpath/filename"; the interactions between server and client
work fine.

However, when I want to upload to the Linux FTP server, this trick doesn't
work, and it sends back the "Absolute URI is too short" error, any idea how to
get around this?
