Filezilla client over ftp proxy

Reported by: Christophe Van Huffel Owned by:

Keywords: Ftp proxy Cc:
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version: windows Xp SP3


since the last 3 versions of filezilla client we experience that if we use an ftp proxy ( witch we are obligated ) to connect to the internet FTP servers that downloads from ftp servers resume over the actual filesize. Meaning that if you download a file of say about 300MB it doesn't stop at 300MB it always gives an error message at the end of the file concerning retry and it starts downloading the file from scratch. But it still gives the download completion as "> 100%" and this goes on and on untill you end the download. After enough searching I stumbled on the fact that it was related to Filezilla client. I tried the same setup with another software like Core FTP LE and there the file just ends at his size and is saved.

Can you investigate this,

Described symptoms and the few lines of visible log in the are a strong indication that you are using Microsoft IIS as FTP server.

These servers are fundamentally broken, they accept the resume command (REST) yet ignore it when actually transferring.

You have to upgrade to a proper server.

Please reopen if you are not using IIS as neither server nor proxy.
