Description

I used Filezilla to connect to my private FTP site, which does not allow anonymous logins, so you will not be able to use it to test this problem unless I set you up with an account. If you do need me to do that, please email me at stephen@….

I have my FTP server set up so that it has a restriction that only permits one connection per IP address, so I set the option in the site settings for Filezilla to use a maximum of 1 simultaneous connection. It logged in OK, and allowed me to browse the directories, but when I tried to download a file, Filezilla attempted to open a second connection to do the download, and it was denied by my FTP server which sent this:

421 No more connections accepted from 203.97.46.10, try again later.

each time. Filezilla continued to retry until I told it to disconnect.

I verified that my FTP server was working correctly by using NcFTP to get the file I wanted.

The following is a copy of the Filezilla log for the session:

What version of FileZilla 3 are you using? FileZilla 3 beta 6 is the latest.

FTP always needs two connections: One for commands and one for each transfer. So you request a file over the command connection, and then a second data connection is used to transfer the file.

comment:2 Changed 13 years ago by Alexander Schuch

This is a known problem with FileZilla.

FileZilla creates a secondary control connection when transferring files so that it is still possible to browse the FTP server while files are being transferred. With your setup, the secondary control connection gets rejected by the server due to connection limit.

There is no schedule on when the problem will be solved. But as it is know, it will be implemented as soon as there is time for it.

Someone else reported the same problem again, but that report is not confidential. In order to have only one bug report per issue, this one will be closed (as duplicate) in favour to the public report:
[ 1687849 ] Limit number of simultaneous connections doesn't work
