#1204 closed Bug report

Cannot open folder with about 1200 files

Reported by: jkealey Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Server
Keywords: Cc: jkealey, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


  • Running server 0.9.22 beta.
  • I have a folder with 1168 files in it.
  • All clients timeout when trying to open this folder (filezilla, IE, command line ftp).
  • I moved half of the files into a subfolder: loaded fine.
  • While loading with latest filezilla client, I see the bytes downloaded increase in 8k increments and freeze at 23360 bytes.
  • here is a sample log, with IPs removed

The last disconnected is the filezilla client that disconnects after a timeout. Other clients like IE stay connected.

Please make sure all routers involved are using the latest available firmware.
For a test, uninstall all firewalls and virus scanners (The only way to truly disable most of them).

  • There are no routers, it is on a dedicated server.
  • There are no virus scanners.

Will look into windows firewall... but why would it freeze only on a folder that contains tons of files?

comment:3 by jkealey, 17 years ago


You are correct. The problem does not occur when windows firewall is disabled. Is this a configuration problem that I can quickly resolve or am I doomed? :)

Note: Works fine when in active mode.

Firewall issue. Please contact Microsoft for proper configuration of their firewall.
