#9775 new Bug report

Log file download failure

Reported by: John R Owned by:
Priority: high Component: FileZilla Client
Keywords: log file download Cc:
Component version: Operating system type: Windows
Operating system version: WIN 8.1

Description

Beginning with version 3.9.0.1 - and having changed NONE of my webmaster permissions - I have been experiencing an increasing number of errors when attempting to view or download log files on my website. Whether I right click view/edit, double-click to download, or attempt to drag and drop a log file from the webhost server to my local drive, I get this message:

Status: Starting download of /log/access_log.2014-08-18
Command: PASV
Response: 227 Entering Passive Mode (206,188,192,89,185,179)
Command: RETR access_log.2014-08-18
Response: 550 Failed to open file.
Error: Critical file transfer error

I marked this ticket "high" because there error has now become persistent. I am unable to download/view ANY log files.

There is no problem uploading files (drag and drop), renaming files on the host server, or moving files between folders on the host.

Could you please provide the logs?

If possible for a session where some transfers work correctly and some do not.

With version 3.9.0.5, I have been experiencing fewer failures.

Here is the log with some successes, then failures. Once failures begin, the only way to recover is to clear the history, close the application, and re-launch.

Do you have the same problem using *other* FTP clients? It is the FTP server which returns that error code/message. Right now it seems to me that FileZilla Client cannot do much about it.

FileZilla is the only FTP client I have used since launching my website in 2007. It worked beautifully until the 3.0+ versions, when apparently, a security patch was added that disconnects from the server after every download action. My guess is that prior to 3.0, a connection was maintained throughout the session.

I recently started testing WinSCP, and am not experiencing any of the problems that are plaguing FileZilla. My hosting service still recommends FileZilla, so I guess I need to let them know about the problems.
