#4111 closed Bug report (rejected)

Repeatedly connects to server and disconnects because of ""Bad packet length 3605174332"

I tried dragging a folder from my remote site to my local folder. At one point it said that the file existed on my local directory and what would I like to do. I selected Overwrite, Always perform this action, and clicked OK. Then I started noticing it kept disconnecting because of bad packet lengths. This has happened a lot. I know my connection is somewhat spotty, but I don't think it should be happening this much (and I tried the same operation of copying a folder to my local drive using VanDyke's SecureFX 6.1 and it worked fine). Also, at some point in the middle of all of this, the Stop button got disabled, which meant I had to close Filezilla to stop the transactions (it would go on forever). Also, a folder named "1211079332421" appeared mysteriously inside my local folder, with some weird files in it. I have attached all the output that was printed before I closed Filezilla.

Since it also happens with psftp, it's not a problem caused by FileZilla. If you can rule out your server at being at fault, please contact the PuTTY developers.
