Reported by: Matteo Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: ascii sftp transfer ^M Cc: matteo.piemonti.con@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version:


Trying to transfer a text file from Windows to an Unix machine with FileZilla it happen that on Unix machine into the text file at the end of the transfer there is a "M" at the end of every line. Trying to transfer the same file with other clients (i.e. CuteFTP or CoreFTP) it works. Also forcing "ASCII tranfer" there is the same bug

The version of SFTP most commonly used simply does not have different data types. Everything is always transferred in binary.

OK, with this BUG we will not use anymore FileZilla, we will use another free FTP client that works, instead of the bugged FileZilla.

How can it possibly be a bug if the protocol itself does not support it?

It's like saying "My car is broken, it cannot fly to the moon."

You can try other softwares, for example CuteFTP or CoreFTP Lite, and try to transfer over SFTP a text file to an unix machine. Do a "vi" of the transferred file and the file will be clean without M, instead of FileZilla, where you can see a M at the end of every line. It is clear that CuteFTP or CoreFTP does something that FileZilla doesn't do...
