#989 closed Bug report

Files beginning with " - " Will Not Download

Reported by: seinjunkie Owned by:
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Server
Keywords: Cc: seinjunkie, Tim Kosse
Component version: Operating system type:
Operating system version:


Filezilla server will list the files that begin with "

  • " (Space dash space), but when you attempt to

download them via Filezilla client, you receive the
following message:

Command: RETR - Dear Mama.mp3
Response: 550 File not found
Error: Download failed

Not sure if this is a limitation of the FTP protocol or
not, but it seems like it should be easy to resolve.

Just don't use files with such inproper names, they only
cause problems.

With all respect, if Windows accepts the name as valid and
FileZilla server shows it in its directory listing,
shouldn't FileZilla serverbe able to supply it to the
requester? Even if that means copying the file to a
temporary file name on the server side and sending it to the
client as that name.
