Can't transfer photos to Photobucket.com via FTP

FTPBox is exactly what I've been looking for... except I can't get it to work with Photobucket.com. The error messages in the debug log says "Prohibited file name: ~ftpb_s20145029a.jpg". Is there a work around for this or something I can change in configuration. Is this a function of the way Photobucket has their FTP server configured? Can't wait to use this product.

    Hey Glen,

    FTPbox uses temporary names when transferring files to make sure the transfer is complete before overwriting the old file. Those temporary names are set to start with '~ftpb_' and it seems that Photobucket does not allow that name (I assume the ~ character is not allowed)

    This is currently not configurable, but I could make this feature optional or simply make the temporary name format configurable.

    I will let you know when this is added.

    Regards,
    John
