Description Derek Price 2001-05-07 12:58:47 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-cvshome.2 i686)

Description of problem:
gftp fails to retrieve directory listings on all ftp sites.  This problem
was present in the version distributed with RH 7.1 and the most recent
update.  This becomes apparent immediately upon log in to any ftp site.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter updates.redhat.com in remote site field
2. Click connect

Actual Results:  The log window showed a successful login up to the LIST
-aL command.  The status field shows, "Receiving file names...", but the
directory list window never fills in.

Expected Results:  A directory list should have shown up and I should have
been able to browse the ftp site.

Are you sure you have version 2.0.8? (rpm -q gftp)

Comment 2 Derek Price 2001-05-08 02:54:47 UTC
[oberon@empress oberon]$ rpm -q gftp
[oberon@empress oberon]$ 

Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-12 18:32:29 UTC
Works fine for me. Are you behind some sort of firewall? Maybe
updates.redhat.com was just hosed on the day you tried it?

Comment 4 Derek Price 2001-07-16 13:29:15 UTC
You were probably correct.  I haven't had time to work on my firewall yet, but I
confirmed that the command line FTP client I was using to confirm that FTP
connections work through my firewall defaults to passive mode and not active, as
I was previously assuming.

Thanks for your help and sorry about the bogus report.
