#3133 closed Bug report

FZ3 Can't connect to some spanish FTP servers that FZ2 can

When attempting to connect to some FTP servers that use spanish messages, FZ3 times out without even detecting the username/password prompt.

This is under Ubuntu Edgy, english language installation, and Filezilla 3 BETA 7.

I have the ES locale installed as can be seen below:

ariel@polaris:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales
Generating locales...

doneen_AU.UTF-8... done
es_AR.UTF-8... done
es_BO.UTF-8... done
es_CL.UTF-8... done
es_CO.UTF-8... done
es_CR.UTF-8... done
es_DO.UTF-8... done
es_EC.UTF-8... done
es_ES.UTF-8... done

Generation complete.

An then tried:

ariel@polaris:~$ export LC_ALL=es_ES.UTF-8
ariel@polaris:~$ filezilla

With or without the export I get the same timeout problem.

FZ2 (with Wine) works with no problems in the same machine / Ubuntu OS.

GNU's ftp client also works fine with these sites.


FZ3 fails:
Status: Resolving IP-Address for
Status: Connecting to
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Response: 220-FTP server ready.
Status: Invalid character sequence received, disabling UTF-8. Select UTF-8 option in site manager to force UTF-8.
Error: Connection timed out
Error: Could not connect to server

GNU ftp works fine:

220-FTP server ready.

It would be great to have this fixed :)

Hi, this is to confirm that the nightly build 2007-04-22 does not have the problem anymore!
