Bug in FileZilla 3 - Could not read from transfer socket: ECONNRESET - Connection reset by peer

Reported by: Reg Manzer Owned by:

Description

In FileZilla 3 I get the following Errors:
Error: Could not read from transfer socket: ECONNRESET - Connection reset by peer
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

This only happens on one server I connect to and I can connect and do a directory listing successfully to other servers on the same domain. It doesn't happen in FileZilla version 2 and I can connect and do a file listing on this server with KFTPGrabber so it seems to be an issue with FileZilla 3. I have found that if I go to the view menu and click refresh that sometimes it will reconnect and the directory listing will work but sometimes it won't.
It's a difficult bug to squash I'll bet. I have seen others having this same issue in the forum.
So just to be clear, I can connect, the error occurs when FileZilla attempts to execute the directory listing on the remote FTP server.
The remote FTP server is running Microsoft FTP Service (Version 5.0).

Hi,

I ran into the same error message, and I double checked that it was on passive mode instead of active mode in the FTP settings; it wasn't. So I changed it to passive mode, tried again, and the error message was gone. I also enabled "send FTP keep-alive commands."

Cheers

As there is no reply from the bug reporter for over 2 years, I assume this "bug" can be "fixed" by simply using passive mode.
