Using BINARY mode transfer even though ASCII is selected!

Reported by: Box 200 Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client

Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: XP Professional


I’ve been using FileZilla successfully until I upgraded to version 3.1.5.

Despite selecting “Auto” or “ASCII” for the file transfer mode in teh FileZilla menu FileZilla version 3.1.5 always transfers the file in BINARY mode! A sample of the output is as follows:

Command: CWD /cgi-bin
Response: 250 Directory successfully changed.
Command: TYPE A
Response: 200 Switching to ASCII mode.
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode
Command: RETR hits_out.txt
Response: 150 Opening BINARY mode data connection for hits_out.txt (5749 bytes).
Response: 226 File send OK.
Status: File transfer successful

As you can see FileZilla switches to ASCII mode but transfers the file in BINARY mode! I feel this is a major bug with the software.

Please could someone investigate as I would really like to keep using FileZilla but the software as it stands is incapable of transferring in ASCII mode without corrupting the file.
