#3495 closed Bug report

Can't download some files

Reported by: milkster Owned by: Alexander Schuch
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: milkster, Alexander Schuch
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


I am having trouble downloading certain files from my webhost. I think this has something to do with the filename itself. The filename has 1 space, a colon (:), and underscores.

example file name:
"2008-05-01 13:52:14NO_GAME_FOUND.txt"

I am running FileZilla on Windows XP SP2

I have tried an older version of FileZilla (2.2.19a) running on Win 2000 Server SP4 and downloading the exact same file works.

I'm attaching the log file...

FileZilla 3 tries to create a file with a colon in its name, but Windows does allow this.

FileZilla 2 was able to download the file, but which file name did it use? The colons were replaced by underscores, or spaces, or some other valid characters?
