Description dunwoody 1999-10-28 01:30:47 EDT
I've been using runsocks-1.0r9-6 with ncftp to access ftp
sites from behind SGI's firewall.  Up to and including
ncftp-3.0beta19-2, this worked fine.  With
ncftp-3.0beta21-2, I get "bad file descriptor" errors:

runsocks ncftp rawhide.redhat.com
NcFTP 3.0.0 beta 21 (October 04, 1999) by Mike Gleason
Connecting to
Could not open host rawhide.redhat.com: invalid reply from
Could not read reply from control connection: Bad file

I switched back and forth between ncftp-3.0beta19-2 and
ncftp-3.0beta21-2 just to convince myself this wasn't
a transient error, and it consistently works fine with
beta19-2 and breaks with beta21-2.

I do NOT get these errors using beta21-2 with a direct
Internet connection (no runsocks/firewall).

This might be a problem that's peculiar to my network
environment, but since ncftp is probably used frequently
with socks to get through firewalls, I thought I should
report it.

Can't reproduce it here... Does it happen with every ftp server or only with
ones running wu-ftpd 2.6.0?
Comment 2 dunwoody 2000-02-13 00:08:59 EST
Just to provide a further sense of closure on this one, the problematic behavior
I was seeing seems to have disappeared with the combination of ncftp-3.0beta21-2
and the latest Rawhide rpm's as of this writing.
