Failed Transfers Because of Limited Slots

#1 Post by FileGamer » 2014-10-06 04:48

So I connect to a server that gives me a max of 3 download slots. Whenever I select a folder or select a bunch of files that are more than 3, it fails to queue more than three of them and makes them failed transfers.

This is what Filezilla tells me:

Code: Select all

Response:	550 Your have reached your maximum of 3 simultaneous downloads. Transfer denied.
Error:	Critical file transfer error
Response:	550 Your have reached your maximum of 3 simultaneous downloads. Transfer denied.
Error:	Critical file transfer error
There's no error number or anything, it just gives a critical error. Why, I don't know? It's kind of annoying too because if I have a queue of 30 files to transfer in a folder, I have to right-click 10-times to resume the transfers because there's a max of 3 at a time. When I resume the transfers, they work fine. It should queue the files and not make them failed because they're not even started. I don't know why it's doing this. If you're not sure either, can you at least tell me where things like this would be in the source code so I could "attempt" to fix it myself.

Listing directory contents counts as transfer.

Note the reply code, it starts with a 5 meaning permanent error as per FTP specifications. On permanent errors FileZilla does not retry automatically.

Try setting a connection limit of 3 in the site manager for your server.

For uploading though, I have more than 3 slots. I set the max number of connections to that number, and that didn't fix it. So I did what you said and set the max number to 3 and that did work. But now, any time I upload, I'm gonna have to change that value, right?

Yes.

What's the reason for this highly unusual server configuration?

Shared web server, not dedicated, so who knows how many people I'm sharing this server with.
