#1277 closed Bug report

can't multitask/browse & upload different dirs

Description

in 2.2.32 and previous versions, when files are being uploaded in the queue and you are looking at one directory, you can't browse to another directory and upload those files to appropriate places.
for instance,
local:/www/jimm/i/a.gif-->remote:public_html/images/a.gif
local:/www/jimm/i/b.gif-->remote:public_html/images/b.gif
local:/www/jimm/i/c.gif-->remote:public_html/images/c.gif
local:/www/jimm/p/a.pdf-->remote:public_html/pdf/a.pdf
local:/www/jimm/p/b.pdf-->remote:public_html/pdf/b.pdf
local:/www/jimm/p/c.pdf-->remote:public_html/pdf/c.pdf
local:/www/jimm/v/a.mpg-->remote:public_html/video/a.mpg
local:/www/jimm/v/b.mpg-->remote:public_html/video/b.mpg
local:/www/jimm/v/c.mpg-->remote:public_html/video/c.mpg

I can go to the next directory down (..) but I can't browse up anywhere. the program prevents it.

Two possible reasons:
1) Server doesn't allow multiple connections
2) You have disabled "Use multiple connections to transfer files" in the settings dialog.

Either one prevents you to browse the server while a transfer is going on due to limitations in the FTP protocol.

server does allow multiple connections - I had multiple connections turned on and I was using it on the uploads. on several sites in fact.
I still have this problem I am describing. I can't get out of the current dir it is transferring to/from on the remote side while it is transferring. the directory listing is blocked.

So it never worked for you before? Or did a version work before already?

Anyway, if you do not need any features of FileZilla 2 which aren't yet (re-) implemented in FileZilla 3, I suggest using FileZilla 3 instead. At least try FileZilla 3 and check if it works for you.

feature is implemented correctly in FZ3. I can drag several directories somewhat rapidly in sequence and they get queued up properly, as long as I wait for the remote directory listing to refresh for downloads (the queue was still going).
uploads I don't have to wait. so I am closing this.
