Description Jeroen Beerstra 2008-01-30 17:03:51 EST
Description of problem: When I try to transfer large amounts of files via
standard ftp, sometimes Filezilla skips files randomly which makes it unusable 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to a ftp account
2. Transfer a large amount of files and (sub)dirs, for example a Joomla
3. Notice there are files missing.
Actual results:

Files are missing

Expected results:

Everything should be transfered as expected from a mature ftp client
Additional info:

I tried to mention this to FileZilla support directly, but they refuse to
support this issue since 3.0.2 is "heavily outdated". 3.0.6 refuses to build
because of a dependency on newer wxGTK. Please help/advise.
Comment 1 Nicolas Chauvet (kwizart) 2008-01-31 02:39:45 EST
Indeed, a newer FileZilla package cannot even be built into Rawhide for that
reason (wxGTK need to be at least 2.8.6 but the newest wxGTK is 2.8.7).

Of course i will build a newer FileZilla when possible, but maybe we won't have
this possibility for F7 or F8, altought it would be desirable...

Note that the problem even happen with 3.0.6
Sometime the ftp server do not work well with mutliple connections
you may need to limit the maximum connection used (to only 1).

Hmm, I already had this impression. Will try your suggestion. 

Still I believe this is a bug, there should be failed transfers then. However
this should be fixed upstream.
