bug or feature request: failed transfers

#1 Post by flow » 2019-02-20 14:06

Hello!

Sometimes, when I transfer files from FTP to NAS, there's a wifi issue and transfer stops. For some reason, the NAS doesn't recover from that (files can't be written to) right away after the wifi connection is back, and even with "Reconnection settings -> Maximum number of retries" being set to 99 (with a 60s delay being set), FileZilla gives up right away.

I'd prefer FileZilla to try 99 times to resume the transfer.

Also, it would be very helpful if the "Failed transfers" tab would change its color to a bright red once a file ends up there. IMHO it's too easy to overlook now.

The problem is probably the reply code from the FTP server. If it starts with a "5", that means "permanent error". In this case, FileZilla doesn't retry as it makes no sense.

Hmm, ok... How can I confirm if it's a "5"?

(Sorry for the late reply, I forgot to set "Notify me when a reply is posted")

Look at the message log, it shows the communication with the server if an error occurs.
