Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 506379
Filezilla does not reconize EOF when using sftp connections.
Last modified: 2009-06-19 10:45:28 EDT
Description of problem:
When transfering large files over sftp, Filezilla will successfully complete the file transfer. Then attempt to resume transfer of the same file. It will continue to "reget" the same file over and over.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happens on any large files over sftp when Filezilla has been shutdown and then the transfer has been restarted.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Filezilla. Connect to sftp server.
2. Perform "get" on a large file. (ei 100MB)
3. Stop the transfer and close Filezilla.
4. Re-open Filezilla and restart the queue.
5. When the file has finished downloading, Filezilla will attempt to resume the transfer (reget), starting from the last byte + 1.
Filezilla continues to attempt "reget" of the completed file.
Filezilla should recognize when it has reached the end of the file and move on to the next transfer in the queue.
Attached is a screen shot showing a file being downloaded from an sftp server. As you can see, the remote file is the same size as the amount of data transfered. In the message window, the reget can be seen in progress.

Given that F-9 is goind EOL and this bug isn't security related.
I will close this as WON'TFIX.
Thx for the report, but please open a new report on a recent Fedora version if you experienced the bug again.
