fileZilla makes new connection when downloading a file from the server

Reported by: CJ van der Hoeven Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: 3.53.1 Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: 10


Using the latest filezilla: 3.53.1 on Windows 10:
Connecting to server : Ok
Clicking on remote directories : Ok, Shows directory contents.
Dragging a file from remote to local directory:

  • Filezilla creates a new connection on the control channel.

This is probably not a problem on a real ftp server.
But I am debugging a tiny server on an ESP32 controller. And this controller can only handle a single client at the time. So it does not handle the new connect attempt while the primary connection is still active.

As a result, the new connect times-out, and the file download fails.

I wonder why Filezilla makes a new connection. Should it not continue with the existing connection?

FileZilla uses multiple connection so that you can still browse the server during an ongoing transfer.

You can limit connections to 1 in the Site Manager.
