FileZilla Client (Ubuntu) GnuTLS error -50

#1 Post by slackness » 2018-11-22 00:58

Happy holidays everyone!

I'm hoping one of you can help sort out an issue I have connecting my FileZilla client running on a freshly installed Ubuntu 18.10 64-bit laptop (HP ProBook 450 G2) to my FileZilla server (FileZilla Server 0.9.60 beta) running on my Windows 10 64-bit PC.

If I try to connect to my server from my windows PC it works fine, but I'm unable to connect with my Linux computer due to the following error:

Status: Connecting to 67.189.xx.xx:21...
Status: Connection established, waiting for welcome message...
Status: Initializing TLS...
Error: GnuTLS error -50 in gnutls_priority_set_direct: The request is invalid.
Error: Failed to initialize TLS.
Error: Could not connect to server

The server log shows the following:

(000003)11/21/2018 16:53:22 PM - (not logged in) (67.189.xx.xx)> AUTH TLS
(000003)11/21/2018 16:53:22 PM - (not logged in) (67.189.xx.xx)> 234 Using authentication type TLS
(000003)11/21/2018 16:53:22 PM - (not logged in) (67.189.xx.xx)> disconnected.

Sorry, no support for repository FileZilla versions, which are often outdated, like yours is.

Please try the genuine version from this website.

I will try this now. Are there instructions on where to extract the three folders in the compressed file?

bin, lib, share

Just extract the "filezilla3" directory to a user directory (personally, I keep it inside the ~/Documents directory). Keep the directory structure as-is. Run the filezilla binary from the bin subdirectory.
