Description Bert de Bruijn 1999-05-01 01:28:39 UTC
if you try to ftp-install/upgrade from a server using a userid/password containing an "@" character, the installer will nog be able to get stage2.img. (the @ is considered to be the start of the hostname). passwords containing a [TAB] character can't even be entered in the installer dialog ([tab] switches to the next field).

This has been assigned to a developer for further review.

*** Bug 2731 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** If you try to install RH 6.0 through TIS's fwtk's ftp-gw, then there are two major problems: 1. Using ftp@<mirror site> as the account name doesn't work. The error is not helpful, either. Fortunately, this can be worked around using the (undocumented) <mirror site>!ftp, but only by reading source! 2. Setting your password to your email address doesn't work either. The error is simply "bad response from server", which really doesn't help much. Presumably, it is the presence of an "@" that screws it up. Luckily, the mirror I was using (hensa) didn't seem to mind having no password, so I could work around this, too. BTW, the term "FTP proxy" isn't helpful during the install - what kind of proxy? SOCKS? HTTP? ftp-gw? Who knows? ------- Additional Comments From jbj 05/15/99 17:50 ------- *** Bug 2380 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** Having been unable to do so in Redhat v5.1 and v5.2, I tried to install v6.0 using FTP via our proxy, Netscape Proxy server v3.5. The installer failed with the message "unknown server response". A look on the console screen indicated that instead of trying to log into the proxy with the supplied username and password, it was trying to log into the anonymous ftp server with the username and password. Please fix this, having to download 450MB worth of data just to actually install less than 100MB of it is a real waste. ------- Additional Comments From msw 04/27/99 11:23 ------- non anonymous proxy is not supported, nor is it high on the list of things to do ------- Email Received From Graham Leggett <minfrin> 04/27/99 11:29 ------- ------- Email Received From Ben Laurie <ben.uk> 05/15/99 17:54 ------- ------- Additional Comments From ben.uk 05/24/99 16:35 ------- Please justify this supposed "resolution": the proxy is a perfectly standard, anonymous fwtk FTP proxy. Is there some other proxy that actually doesn't suffer from these problems? If so, what? ------- Additional Comments From dlt 06/28/99 12:41 ------- *** Bug 3685 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. *** This may be related to the existing FTP proxy or HTTP proxy problems, but there is an additional piece of information. Despite entering a port number and proxy host on the FTP proxy form, the installer tries to do a proxy GET to the FTP port on the proxy. I noticed this since our proxy server has tcp wrappers watching the FTP port and the connection attempt was caught. No matter what I put for a port value on the "Further FTP Setup" form, it still tries to talk to the FTP port on the proxy host. Did that make sense?
