Download files with zero bytes

#1 Post by pverrone » 2017-05-15 15:27

Recently I have been running into an issue where large numbers of file downloads fail because they have a zero byte file size.
The uploads of these files work just fine.

I realize that maybe files with a zero size may not be needed, but I am transferring for clients, and I would like everything transferred for completeness.

Has anyone run into this issue?

No, zero byte files should download exactly like all others.

Do you get an error in the log when that happens, or does FileZilla pop up a message?

This happens even though files before and after this one transfer just fine.

Which FTP server software (product and version) is the server running?

Just following up on this.
I tried it on a different computer, and everything worked just fine, so it was definitely a local setting.

Oh, FYI, the server was shared hosting on 1and1.

I appreciate this was 12 months ago, but I am having the same problem.

Upload is fine, but downloading of zero length files fails. All other files seem to transfer ok in the same session. I am on 1and1 (or more correctly now IONOS).

Thank you

220 rproxy1b FTP server (Version 1.9.2.4 - 2005/01/11 13:03:28) ready.
It looks like the server is behind some antique reverse proxy. Most likely the issue is with this reverse proxy, with it not handling all possible sequences of events correctly.
