#1232 closed Bug report

login popup misbehavior

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



After I log into a server where my password will expire in XY days, the server sends back a notification which states so and ask me to press 'Enter' to continue. This causes the FileZilla client to popup a 2nd login dialog box and refuses to let me hit enter because I did not specify anything in the password input box (error: blank password).

This misbehavior has been present for as long as I can remember.

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  • Using SSH client:

1) log into the server
2) enter userid and password
3) server sends this text back:
Your password expires in 12 days. Please change it as soon as possible.
Press Enter to Continue.
4) press Enter key to complete the login process

  • Using the FileZilla client:

1) Setup a SFTP connection to the server
2) Initiate a SFTP connection to the server
3) FileZilla prompts for initial password
4) enter password
5) Server sends this text back:
Your password expires in 12 days. Please change it as soon as possible.
6) FileZilla pops up a "keyboard-interactive authentication" input dialog box
7) press Enter key fails the dialog box validation code resulting in an error popup stating "You have to enter a string!".
8) clicking on "cancel" button result in a connected session but nothing in the remote directory panel, clicking on the "refresh" option doesn't do anything.

Version Used:

FileZilla Client 2.2.30
