#3505 closed Bug report

Invalid Port Number

Reported by: arnie1066 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc: arnie1066, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


If you type a textual address into the host box in either the quick connect or the manager, the program fails with the message:

Could not parse server address:
Invalid port given. The port has to be a value from 1 to 65535

This same message occurs regardless of what port number is used.

There is no reason, that i am aware of, why the textual host value should not work (it works in all browsers and other ftp clients). If text is not supported, it should mention that and ignore the port number, (which was correct) until a numerical value for the host is entered.

User error. Protocol specifier ends with double slashes, not backslashes.

comment:2 by arnie1066, 16 years ago

While i may have had a senior moment involving the double slashes, the message that appears is still incorrect, the port number was perfectly OK, the message should have indicated a problem with the address as type (which it did kind of) but not mention the port number at all as that totally threw me of the track, i may have spotted my rather stupid error if the message had not mentioned the port number.

Thanks for checking it out so quick though.

A colon after the host separates host from port.

If you enter "ftp:
somehost.exmple", the host is "ftp" and the port is "
somehost.example". So the error message is correct.
