#3958 closed Bug report (rejected)

problem with certain passwords

Reported by: javier wilson Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Linux
Operating system version: fedora9


some users reported problems with their ftp accounts using filezilla, the always got:
Command: PWD
Response: 500 Unknown command.
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing
Response: 500 Unknown command.
Response: 257 "/"
Trace: Unexpected reply, no reply was pending.

i noticed that if i change their password, it works fine, if i change it back to the original value, the error comes back, i am attaching debug logs for both cases.

yes, it sounds like witchcraft, but i saw many people in forums with the same problem. this is the only workaround i found.

the same goes for gftp, only the debug window says "Invalid response '2' received from server."

Really odd. Does the funny password contain any non-ASCII characters?

Also, try upgrading to vsftpd 2.0.7, 2.0.1 is quite outdated. The rest of your entire system probably needs to be upgraded as well.

yes, very odd, try: v4mp*r0
as i said i had the same problem with gftp, but not with lftp o ftp from the command line.

Since (some) other clients are affected too, this is not a problem with FileZilla.

You need to upgrade to a better server. Also, in case you're using any firewalls, uninstall them.
