ls command failing to retreive directory listing

Reported by: Bradley Paul Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: ls large directory list Cc: bradley.paul@…
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: Most users use XP SP 3 x86


The ls command is failing to retrieve the directory listing for directories that have a large number of files in them.

Command: cd "Communique-PROD"
Response: New directory is: "/Communique-PROD"
Command: ls
Status: Listing directory /Communique-PROD
Error: No valid incoming packet found
Error: Failed to retrieve directory listing

We tested by moving files out of the directory and then the ls command worked again. Placing the files back in the directory causes the ls to stop working. Due to this problem we are unable to retreive or put items in the FTP folder or go to any sub-folder.

We are running a GlobalScape Secure FTP server and connecting on port 22.

GlobalScape Cute FTP Pro and WSFTP Pro (newer versions) work with large directory listings.

The directory we were testing with had 323 items. (Our test removed and replaced 200 of those items)

To me it looks as if there is another issue. Do you use any firewall or so? Do you still have the problem with FileZilla 3.5.3?
