#250 closed Bug report

Queue Processing does not respect retry settings

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: ruisa, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Using v2.1.3a:

Not using multiple connections.


  1. Connect to site
  2. Find directory to download
  3. Right click - "Download As"
  4. Enter another username/password and hit ok
  5. Select Process Queue

Expected Results:
New connection attempt under entered username/password
should proceed, if the connection is not made, the
client should attempt to reconnect x number of times
after waiting for y seconds, as specified in the
settings dialogue.

Actual Results:
New connection attempt under entered username/password.

If connection is not made reconnection is attempted

IMMEDIATELY. Very frustrating for ftp servers with
auto-ban after x number of failed connections.

Hello. This happens on v2.1.5 manual transfer too.


  1. Configure a manual transfer, keep "start transfer" checked.
  2. That's it.

If the connection failed, FileZilla retries immediately, ignoring
the "time between retries" setting.

This bug is still here in 2.1.7: can anyone please look at this

Not using multiple connections, whenever a transfer breaks,
the retry settings are not observed and retry is attempted
immediately, and if login is unsuccessfull (due to e.g.
maximum # of users having been reached) this usually
results in the user being banned for some time as successive
attempts are made without any delay between them.

This bug report has been closed due to inactivity and has possibly
already been solved.

You can reopen this report if the issue still exists in the
latest version of FileZilla (Server).
