Description

14 years ago
conneting a server that needs username and password doesn't work. It runs into
endless looping (i think during the protocol processing).
Following server works well: ftp.freenet.de (public)
This server doesn't work: people-ftp.freenet.de (user webspace)
FTP applications doesn't have any problems. I think, it a problem of how the
server answers the protocol. Here the transmit filed by ftp app (something
german, sorry):

After reading some more bug listed dealing with problems on ftp if think the
background decribed by bug 225519 mkay be the reason for that.
Initialy the server answers (suspected) with short list instead of full list.
So it may be the described issue under 225519, isn't it ?
could be...
Is it possible that create a Packet Trace `(for example with Ethreal) ?
[change your password for that because it will be in the log]

if I can get an account on this site, I can attempt to fix the problem.

Heiko sent me a log of the ftp traffic, however it doesn't show if the LIST
request returned any data.

he wrote in my mail : 
"for the last packet no answer will be occure, still waiting infinitly."

then, comment 2 isn't the issue.

If the FTP client sends LIST and there is no reponse on either the control or
data ports, the server is busted.
