#3189 closed Bug report

Problems with upload of empty files and directories

Reported by: axios Owned by: Tim Kosse
Priority: high Component: Other
Keywords: Cc: axios, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Using FileZilla 3 beta 11 and FileZilla 2.2.32 (WinXP to Linux server, FTPES, passive mode, ASCII/auto and binary):

-- It appears that the upload of empty files and empty directory structures causes problems, i. e. the items appear in the failure queue, although some of them were created.

-- FileZilla tries to transfer some null-byte files multiple and asks if the target (which was obviously created) shall be overwritten. Looping until timeout failure, see end of log.

-- FileZilla interprets the server message "530 too many connections" as "wrong password" and thus puts items to the failure queue instead of trying to repeat the transaction later.

To be tested with the files of (lots of empty dirs and files in the directories egw/gallery and egw/phpsysinfo).

I've identified the problem with the upload problem.

About the "530 too many connections", what FileZilla does is correct, 5yz return codes indicate unrecoverable errors and tell the client to permanently give up (until the user decides otherwise)
