Crash connecting to FileZilla Server in VMware

I wanted to use FileZilla Client & Server to transfer files between my VMware Workstation host and virtual machine, since VMware's own file sharing is horribly slow!

I first tried the FileZilla 3 beta, and it crashed connecting to the server.

Here are the steps I took:

1) Install VMware on host machine.

  • Download VMware workstation 30 day trial.
  • Create a new Windows XP VM (I used 1GB RAM of my 2GB).
  • Use NAT (not bridging) for the network, inside the Virtual Machine Network properties in VMware.
  • Install Windows XP.
  • Install FileZilla 3.0 beta client in virtual machine.

2) Install FileZilla Server on host machine.

  • Add one user, with a password.

4) Connect to the server from inside the VM.

  • Run ipconfig /all to get the host's IP address.
  • Open FileZilla 3.0 beta.
  • Create a new server in the connections list, specify the username and password.
  • Click Connect in the connections list dialog, FileZilla crashed.

Hope this helps!

Can you please run FileZilla 3 beta in a debugger and post the backtrace of the crash? The mere fact that it crashes doesn't hel at all in identifying what might be the reason of it.
