Unable to change folder after some errors.

After listing folder failed, I'm not able to change to any folders any more including the up-level directory.

Re: Unable to change folder after some errors.

 
Please try using the active mode instead. To do this, open the session properties and click on the Options tab. In the transfer area, clear the Use Passive mode option.

If your problem persists, please tell us the FTP server you are trying to connect to (and how we can connect to it). We will try to duplicate the problem on our side.

Thank you very much.

Re: Re: Unable to change folder after some errors.

 
This is not a problem of trans mode but a problem of error handle logic.

As you know, the ls cmd use a new data link to translate data from ftp server. Becouse the network situation is not very good, while transfering data from the ftp server, the data link is down but the command link is still alive, while I list a remote directory, error occured on the data link, and the error handle function don't reset some flag to allow xftp to try to continue work, but xftp think connection is ok becouse the command link is alive, at this moment, I double click directry icon to try to enter it but xftp didn't do anything, even I tried to enter parent directory. So at this time, I can do is to disconnect and connect again.

And there's a little suggest:
If I use reconnect button to reconnect, I'd like to enter to the directory I used to be.

Thank you, Bambo Huang, for your thorough explanation.

To fix this problem, it would be helpful if you can provide us with the public Red Hat ftp server information that you are having trouble with. Can we have the name or IP address of the Redhat ftp server?

Thank you.

It's ftp.redhat.com.

I tried to enter directory /pub/redhat/linux/enterprise step by step.

When I was in /pub/redhat/linux and I tried to enter enterprise directory, error occured and I can not enter any other directory

But I think the key point is I have an unstable router. It always make some problem.

There's to part of log.
First in first part, connection lost and we can do nothing, it's right. But in the second part, connection didn't lost, and I can't do anything also.

Part 1:
STATUS:> Listing folder '/pub/redhat/linux'...
COMMAND:> CWD /pub/redhat/linux
250 Directory successfully changed.
COMMAND:> PWD
257 "/pub/redhat/linux"
COMMAND:> TYPE A
200 Switching to ASCII mode.
COMMAND:> PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (209,132,176,30,56,130)
COMMAND:> LIST -a
150 Here comes the directory listing.
226 Directory send OK.
STATUS:> Listing folder completed.
STATUS:> Listing folder 'enterprise'...
COMMAND:> CWD enterprise
250 Directory successfully changed.
COMMAND:> PWD
257 "/pub/redhat/linux/enterprise"
COMMAND:> TYPE A
200 Switching to ASCII mode.
COMMAND:> PASV
227 Entering Passive Mode (209,132,176,30,47,90)
COMMAND:> LIST -a
STATUS:> Disconnecting...
STATUS:> Current connection closed.


Part 2:
STATUS:> Listing folder '/pub/redhat'...
COMMAND:> CWD /pub/redhat
250 Directory successfully changed.
COMMAND:> PWD
257 "/pub/redhat"
COMMAND:> TYPE A
200 Switching to ASCII mode.
COMMAND:> PASV
451 Requested action aborted: local error in
ERROR:> Listing folder failed.
STATUS:> Changing to the folder '/'...
COMMAND:> CWD /

(See here? after ocurred some error, xftp changed current folder to /, and then, I can't enter any directory listed on the right listview.)
