Failed to retrieve directory listing with Blue Coat FTP service (firewall) - starting from Filezilla version 3.2.4

Reported by: Nico Rans Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: MLSD directory listing retrieve failed Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Windows Xp SP3

Description

I've noticed connection failures in the more recent versions of Filezilla. The error that is shown is 'Failed to retrieve directory listing'.

Not all FTP sites are affected as far as I can see, only sites supporting MLSD are affected.

This issue was seen in 2 corporate networks (both using Blue Coat FTP service). As well Windows computers (Windows XP SP3 tested) as Linux computers (Ubuntu 8.10 tested) are affected.

Please find below some logs of different Filezilla versions. All versions older then version 3.2.4 seem to work fine. Please note for security reasonsm usernames, ipaddresses, filenames , ... have been modified in the log file.

Looks like your firewall is broken, it does not support MLSD which has already been standardized for quite some time.

Furthermore, your firewall is utterly broken since it does not filter out unknown features from the FEAT response.

You need to upgrade to a proper firewall.

I have had this same issue. The problem is that I am stuck behind a corporate firewall and I have no ability to change or upgrade the settings for the firewall.

I have modified the source to add a configuration value in the SiteManager dialog to allow each site the option to "Use MLSD".

How do I go about uploading/commiting my changes that incorporate this new setting?

@enderblue

You create a patch (diff -u) between your source and the latest version of FileZilla. Either 3.5.3 or if possible "trunk" in SVN. Submit the patch to the patch tracker and see.

You might also add a reference to this bug.

Anyway, this bug report is due to a broken FTP proxy/firewall. So I reject it again.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
