using 2/18 build of netscape 1) launch netscape 2) launch composer 3) new blanke page 4) add some text 5) File | Publish 6) enter valid publish location, user name and password 7) Publish check that file on the server you get this message: Forbidden Your client is not allowed to access the requested object.
The location Sujay is attempting to publish to is behind a firewall, but for completeness here is the url: ftp://marvin.mcom.com/testplans/enderblackbox/hello.html I think this is a duplicate of bug #121314 However, I need more details before I can confirm that it is a duplicate.
I am seeing similar problems when trying to publish to an FTP server through Composer on today's build (02-18). When I try to post to ftp://ttcqa.office.aol.com/sns (behind firewall)I get a username and password prompt that appears to accept my username and password, but it does not appear to send that information to the server because the dialog keeps coming up. And when I try to publish to ftp://members.aol.com/dslmichael I get no message, and the page appears to be published, but when I check the server, the file was not published.
I am not sure if this helps, but the ttcqa server is running iplanet web server software on a linux server, and the members.aol server is an "aolserver/3.4.2".
If you're on windows, or have a debug build, can you please set the env variable: NSPR_LOG_MODULES=nsFTPProtocol:5 NSPR_LOG_FILE=126246.log and then upload the log? This will reveal passwords (whcih is why this isn't yet on by default), so you may want to edit the log first.... My test program works, locally - let me try the ui now
The UI works for me (although it asserts several times). I'd really appreciate the log, though. What url are you using? URLs are relative toyour home directory, so to uplaod to ~/testUp, you should enter: ftp://localhost/testUp/ The trailing / is probably needed. I need a log to see more, though.
boo hoo! All my ftp tests were to my own website, not behind our firewall, and it works great there.
I am able to ftp publish with a build from last Wednesday (optimized mozilla on Mac). My build from Friday (debug mozilla build on Mac with some changes) does not work. Does anyone have any ideas about what might have introduced this regression?
update: the problems I was seeing were due to a patch for bug 121314. I am able to publish to ftp servers in my build (except for marvin which is running IIS--bug 121314)
I am going to guess that this bug is fixed now that bug 121314 is fixed; please re-test
verified in 2/27 build...ftp publish works and you can also see what you published on server without any "Forbidden...." messages.. Michael/Tucson will also test on a different FTP server to confirm that this is working...
