I was trying to upload one exsample archive to the web space provided by "an ISP", not to name it.

I ran into a problem which I dod not really expect. My ISP does not let me upload files starting with ".". They use FTP for file upload, and the FTP server is apparently configured to refuse unix hidden files.

TLA archive has a number of hidden files which need to be uploaded. Is there a way around this, short of "change ISP"?

Two quickly come to mind. You could use scp instead of ftp

I cannot use scp or sftp, since my ISP only accepts FTP uploads for web area, or so they say. Anyhow, port 22 is dead on that machine.

This sounds equivalent to "change ISP for the purposes of web hosting"

I was hoping there is a way to tell tla not to use hidden filenames in archive.
