Filezilla complains "file not found". I checked: the file certainly does exist. it contains special chars like (,),-

Which version of FileZilla are you using?

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by Alexander Schuch

Do other FTP clients work? This might be a bug with your FTP server. I right now tested with FileZilla SVN 2365 on Pure-FTPd and it works for me:

Command: PORT 127,0,0,22,193,231
Response: 200 PORT command successful
Command: RETR - text(fake).txt
Response: 150 Connecting to port 49639
Response: 226-File successfully transferred
Response: 226 0.000 seconds (measured here), 23.98 Kbytes per second

version I use is 3.0.10. My directory name also contained ! but I guess that doesn't influence the file transfer itself..

I also tried with the old filezilla (2.x) and the behavior was the same. Also upgraded server (filezilla server) to latest version, no success. I will try with the windows command line ftp client and report back

Right now I tried FileZilla 3.0.10 on Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Web Edition 32bit and uploading the file "hey-(test).txt" into a directory called "sdf-!" worked fine.

Waiting for your tests of other FTP clients with same FTP server...

Hi, I tested with the same ftp server and the command line windows ftp client. You are right. It is not a client problem, but a server problem. Should I issue a new bug against FileZilla Server, or can you simply change the category for this bug?

sorry if I messed up the bug status

comment:8 Changed 11 years ago by Tim Kosse

Does the file you want to transfer have leading or trailing spaces?

comment:9 Changed 11 years ago by matti3

affirmative. 1 leading space.

comment:10 Changed 11 years ago by Alexander Schuch

Bug in FileZilla Server and not the one mentioned in the following item?
[ 1564695 ] Problems with leading or terminating spaces

FileZilla 3.0.11. ProFTPD 1.2.5rc1 Server (Debian).

I am also having problems downloading files with special characters. Example "Liste für Domino kompatible Produkte.pdf". If I rename ü->u it downloads just great.

OH... I just discovered, when I download these files one by one, then it works, but if I want do download multiple files it fails !

To marguskohv: Do not post totally unrelated problems in existing bug reports. That is called thread hijacking and a very impolite thing to do.
