"File has changed" is broken

This dialog pops up when I don't want it. Every single time -- which really hammers it home. Then it incorrectly tells me that the file is being edited, when it's not. It takes on the order of seconds to appear -- I can literally select the file, select upload, and confirm overwrite easily in this t...

Re: forum signature disappeared

This board is powered by phpBB. It's actually easily customizable. Easier than you'd think. But the pain in the ass is making it maintain your changes when you want to reinstall or upgrade. We used to use it for the boards on Xona.com before it was Xona Games. For the record, everyone knows me as th...

Re: editing and opening HTML files from the client

I see, and that makes total sense. How does a user tell FileZilla that editing is completed? Perhaps it shouldn't step in for this, since other programs do not, and it's normally up to the user to know if they are editing the same file twice. FileZilla, on the other hand, can do something useful sti...

Re: forum signature disappeared

Sure. I apologize. Thanks for answering my request. A private message stating a "Board warning issued" was not required. Why not merely state the restrictions in the signature editor? I would have complied to any restrictions mentioned. The only one mentioned is the 255 character limit. It's hard to...

forum signature disappeared

My apologies, but there is no other place to post this. My signature just disappeared for no reason. In the editor, it says nothing about any restrictions other than 255 char limit. Am I breaking any rules? If so, it would be nice to know. I believe they should be listed in the signature editor, so ...

Re: editing and opening HTML files from the client

Thanks. Ok I finally got it to work, like so: Under Edit -> Settings -> File editing, I have the following: - Use custom editor, pointing to WordPad - Always use default editor (What I was trying to do, was to use the default system association for "Edit", but I have no idea if such a thing even exi...

editing and opening HTML files from the client

Right clicking on an .HTML file shows "Open" and "Edit". Yet they both do the same thing; they invoke the "Open" command that is default for the .HTML file. In my case, this opens it in Google Chrome. Sure I can set the default action in Explorer to open with WordPad, but then when I click on HTML s...

repeated login attempts from unknown IP

I was shocked to see someone continually (about once every 5 seconds) attempt to log into my server without being banned. It looks like the auto-ban settings are OFF by default. :shock: Wow. So, I went to turn it on and the auto-ban settings impose a minimal of 10 attempts in a single hour! Again......

Re: installation issues... service or not?

This implies that regular FTP is encrypted. I thought it was all plain text. No, I wrote "encrypted FTP". This includes FTPS, FTPES, and SFTP*, but NOT FTP (also called plain FTP or basic FTP)! *Note that SFTP is not FTP at all, but for the sake of encryption, it is included. Ok I was confused, sin...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

My bro and I have created a helpful start-up tutorial follow-along to get people set up. We figured it'd be helpful for us and others in the future, due to the lack of documentation for FileZilla Server. We'll be posting it on Xona.com soon. Awesome, please post back here with a direct link when it...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Simple, the router cannot read encrypted FTP. This implies that regular FTP is encrypted. I thought it was all plain text. A server of mine got hacked once since I used FTP instead of FTPS (FTP + SSL), and to my horror I discovered that the password was being sent over the 'net as plain text! :o Fu...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Update: FTPS (FTP + SSL) works. So this is fine. I didn't want to use FTP anyway, since it's insecure and sends info over the net as plain text. So, I don't care that my router screws up FTP, as long as it handles FTPS fine. Thanks for all of your help guys, it was useful. :) My bro and I have crea...

Re: installation issues... service or not?

Update: I've set up FTP on my brother's PC using all the same settings, with no router, with Windows Firewall exception for FileZilla Server, and it works perfectly. This seems to indicate that it is definitely my router that is screwing up the information. If there is no firmware update, then I can...
