Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 490847
Can't access FTP public folders
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:40:02 EST
Description of problem:
Open the Places/Connect to server... window, select "Public FTP" from the list. Split the addresses I'm going to give you into server name and folder and put them in the specific areas.
Let's try, for example, some Fedora mirrors: the Facebook one made me become curious
or the Fedora one:
So I put mirror.facebook.com in the Server area and fedora/linux in the Folder area.
I can navigate them with Firefox and Opera. When I try to connect with the Nautilus utility I can't mount the filesystem. It doesn't work if I put the entire path in the Server area.
Someone of the forum suggested to connect with the Custom mode in the same window, and put the address in the URI area. It works with the Facebook mirror but not with the other one, it says the host closed the connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I can't connect to the FTP folders using the public FTP mode.
Nautilus should connect to them, since the browsers can!
If I have to go upstream, just say it!
Both URLs work fine in gvfs-1.1.7-5.fc11
There's been a lot of changes in the ftp backend lately, not sure if it's possible to backport them at all.
Really? If it will be fixed for Fedora 11 that's OK for me, you can close this bug report if you want.
