Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi botg, it turns out this was (as you rightly suspected) a server vsftpd misconfiguration, the cause was the 'text_userdb_names=YES' statement. I have deleted that statement so it now defaults to NO. now loading the page returns in seconds instead of minutes in a browser. With the value incorrect, ...

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

hold that thought, despite RedHat tech supp advising the dir list request was not sent, I found a server config optimisation that appears to have resolved the 'directory listing empty' issue from on-prem, will test public access tomorrow.

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi botg,

RedHat analysed packet captures both client and server at the same time, no directory list command was issued by the client,

thanks,

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi, this seems periodically sporadic (seldomly the dir list appeared with FZ), but mostly directory contents are not returned when connecting using FileZilla, I have had a call logged with RedHat since my last update to investigate and advise.

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi botg, solved, I think. I'm not sure what the cause of the issue was, I deployed another VM locally in VMware workstation and started from basic server vsftpd config that worked as expected, then replaced the azure server config with it, and filezilla now works as expected. I'm now working through...

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi botg, thanks for the response. I have plain old unsecured FTP available, though FTPS is also available, so I connected using FileZilla unprotected to ascertain what differences I could determine. I have run packet captures on both the existing host and the new host, and there are differences betw...

Re: FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Notably, I have observed the same experience with another server running vsftpd-3.0.2-25 hosted on RedHat 7.6, so I don't necessarily suspect this to be a bug in code but more likely some configuration setting somewhere. However using the same configuration settings from one of our old servers runni...

FileZilla client "Empty Directory Listing" accessing vsftpd on RedHat

Hi, I am the vsftpd server administrator, and since deploying vsftpd-3.0.2-25 on RedHat EL 7.7 in Azure, when I access using FileZilla client 3.46.3 I receive "Directory Listing Empty". by contrast when accessing the same ftp account using windows command prompt/powershell ; or WinSCP or lftp the di...
