Sender file adapter - filename containing * does not work

Hi All,

I am doing simple file-file scenario wherein my filename is something like


there are many files having similar kind of name which are supposed to be picked

so simply I can go on writing <b>MATMAS05_XI*.xml</b> in filename

it is not working.. communication monitoring gives error <i>Error occurred while connecting to the FTP server "": java.lang.NullPointerException</i>

But when I use character '?' then it works fine - '?' placeholder for each extra character

I am on SP 20.My adapter is configured properly. FTP server working fine with '?' or simple filename. So bit confused why it is not working with *

Are there some BASIS settings which have to be in place to work it out with * ?

All your inputs are welcome !!

Thank You,
