#12388 new Bug report

FZ client progress indicator is misleading when downloading files reached via symlinks

Reported by: ubremer Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: symlink symbolic link progress Cc: ubremer
Component version: 3.52.2 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: W10 2004




user@host:/volume/one$ ls -l *ide*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 user group 98 Feb 10 09:16 image.ide.ova -> /volume/two/image.ide.ova

when downloading this "file" the progress indicator does immediately jumps to "> 100.0%" and "00:00:00 left" for the rest of the download.

I think this is because the base of this calculation is based on the 'stat' of the symlink instead of doing a 'stat' on the actual file before downloading.

What file size is reported in the remote directory listing?

Hi Tim,
as I meant to illustrate with the ls -l output: The size of the symbolic link is benign (98 bytes in this case). Hence my suggestion to get the actual size of the file before its transfer is started.
