#1354 closed Bug report

Changing to certain directories causes server to disconnect

Reported by: mjmars42 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Server
Keywords: Cc: mjmars42, Alexander Schuch, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Filezilla Server 0.9.25 beta
Filezilla Client Build date 2008-01-11 (Windows)

Another issue found during the same tests that were described in bug 1881461

Filezilla Server will error and disconnect host when trying to change to certain directories (typically very long named directories). An example is shown below (specific folder names have been anonymized, but overall directory name length is the same):

Status: Connected
Status: Starting download of /drive-d/Downloads/Xxxxxxx/Xxxxxxxx/for_xxxx/Xxxxxxx_Integration_Test/JDK/sample/jnlp/jreinstaller/src/share/classes/jnlp/sample/JreInstaller/resources/
Command: CWD /drive-d/Downloads/Xxxxxxx/Xxxxxxxx/for_xxxx/Xxxxxxx_Integration_Test/JDK/sample/jnlp/jreinstaller/src/share/classes/jnlp/sample/JreInstaller/resources/
Error: Disconnected from server

This was observed with Filezilla Client as well as command line FTP client, so it appears to be a server-side issue.

Can you manually create that directory? Maybe you hit a limit in maximum path length on Windows? Of course this should be indicated by an appropriate error status line instead of a disconnect...

How long exactly is the full directory name?
