file download never ends, dowloaded file grows and grows
|Reported by:||TheWinterSolstice||Owned by:|
|Component version:||Operating system type:||Windows|
|Operating system version:||2003 Server|
I'm using Win 2003 Server fully patched, downloading from remote server which is running the same. I'm using the 18.104.22.168 FileZilla client. (At the end of this email I have the info I got from the About screen.)
Problem: I was downloading a 38mb zip file, and the download never ended, the file grew and grew. Tried again after exiting and reloading FileZilla, same happened. The funny thing is this: in the 2nd download I waited after the file reached and passed the size it should've been, and I aborted the download. In both zip files the compressed file was fine. I guess some junk gets appended to the zip or some infinite loop kicks in after the file was done.
Good thing I still keep the old 3.x version which works super well.
Thank you for FileZilla. Best regards.
Here is the info on the client:

Your server is broken.
Microsoft servers actively claim to support resume, yet if you ask them to resume a transfer, they send the whole file instead, leading to the described symptoms.
You have to upgrade to a proper server.
