From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011115 BuildID: 2001111504 Try to access any user account via FTP with Moz. Result: The directory doesn't load. The log server returns: Nov 15 19:50:03 linux proftpd: ftp.xyz.com (host.host.com[192.168.2.10]) - FTP no transfer timeout, disconnected. ftp://firstname.lastname@example.org asks for the password but directory doesn't load.. BTW loggin in http (http://user:email@example.com) works great. Reproducible: Always
WFM with both 0.9.5 and current CVS on linux, using wu-ftpd to localhost. Can you get a packet trace (removing your password), and attach it to the bug? What do you mean by douesn't load? Does a blank page come up, or does it just stay at the previous page? There was a change recently to make ftp://[optionalUser@]host/ stay in teh login directory the server gives, rather than change to /, but thats unlikely to cause this.
Finally the problem isn't related to user/password... -> Change summary > What do you mean by douesn't load? Previous page stays. But status changes to Beginning FTP transaction... to Document: Done (xx).. After lot of *retry* the *right content* is sometime displayed... also: 1) I get sometime "Data connection error: Broken pipe" alert... Packet trace return "425 Datacone" (Possible??) (BTW: Never get this with anonymous access, only on account login) 2) Sometime when clicking on link /refresh /reenter the ftp address nothing happens... but even if Moz doesn't change the content, every commands appear in the trace... (except on "Broken pipe" - I think..?). But (here is the weird part) if I let the browser window open, the *nodisplayed request* are delayed and displayed after a while. It's like a BIG lag... Here it's probably the explanation: on repeated requests Moz open multiples sessions inetd FTP connections: 941 2m23s proftpd: ftp - host.host.com: firstname.lastname@example.org: IDLE 942 2m17s proftpd: ftp - host.host.com: email@example.com: IDLE 944 2m13s proftpd: ftp - host.host.com: firstname.lastname@example.org: IDLE - - 3 users Also sometime the directory listing isn't displayed but the "Index of ftp:// ftp.." and the two horzital lines are. But on direct URL request -> file download. Obviously everything works great with NN4.7 or other FTP client...
Summary: ftp://user:email@example.com doesn't work. → Page content not always updated on FTP "LIST" request
Can you attach a full packet trace for the anonymous user?. On unix/windows, you can use ethereal. Don't use tcpdum unless you set it to capture the entire packet's contents. Are you behind a filewall/NAT of some sort? I know os2 servers have problems with the way we do things, but that doesn't explain why it sometimes works. reload/shift-reload for a dir listing doesn't do the right thing at the moment - thats a separate bug? Did earlier mozilla versions work?
Bradley: I tried on 3 computers with MacOS 8.6 with same result. From inside the LAN and outside (modem). I can reproduce with an old build 2001091303 under Win98 from LAN -> Sometime dir content isn't diplayed. -> All/All/Normal
Severity: major → normal
OS: Mac System 8.6 → All
Hardware: Macintosh → All
I wonder if the patch on bug 110241 will help here.
I've made a couple of changes recently which may help this sort of problem. This may just be the double PASV thing, and I think I have an idea on how to fix that. Marking dependancy, although I'm not really sure.
