#8531 closed Bug report (worksforme)

IPv6 address causes error Invalid port given.

Reported by: Dave Fredenburg Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: IPv6 Invalid Port Cc: dave.fredenburg@…
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version: Windows 7 32 bin


I entered an IPv6 address into the host block and it gives me the following error:
Could not parse server address:
Invalid Port given. The port has to be a value from 1 to 65535.

I verified that my address was valid by pinging the address with the -6 switch to force IPv6.
Received replies back.

Tried with port blank and set to 21. Get the same results.

Set debug level to 3 but don't see any logs, probably because it never connected.

As colons are used both as IPv6 address segment separator as well as separating hostname and port in URLs, IPv6 addresses need to be entered in literal form, that is enclosed in square brackets:
