#3914 closed Bug report (rejected)

Downloaded large files are not removed from queue

Reported by: Giovanni Owned by:

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP Pro SP3


When downloading large files (1-2 GB) which take quite some time (e.g. several hours at 80 kB/s), they remain in the queue although they have been downloaded completely. Also, the connection seem to be still open.

If I reopen Filezilla and press the "Q->" button, a short transfer will be initiated (about 1 kB) and the file is then successfully removed.

This bug is annoying because the computer would not shut down over night, and if there are many of those files, other queue entries would wait forever for their turn.

Do you by chance have the timeout set to 0? That way FileZilla never times out and thus tries to continue forever, hoping something will eventually happen.

It is a well known fact that most if not all consumer grade routers and firewalls are horribly broken. FTP uses secondary connections for the data transfers. During these transfers, the primary connections stay completely idle. Malicious routers and firewalls then viciously sabotaging the connection by silently dropping these idle connections.

Please run the network configuration wizard, the test at the end has to succeed. If it doesn't, you are for sure behind a firewall or router that sabotages the connection.
