Hi All,

I am receiving the error:

Could not read from transfer socket: ENOBUFS - Out of memory

On some files when I try to download them, the files in question are text files.

thanks for any help.

Hi,

heres the dialog that occurs when I try to download, you will see some repeated actions as FileZilla keeps re-showing the download dialog box although I state I wish to overwrite the file if it already exists, If the file doesnt exist, it just gives me the error, and downloads the file either empty or with content missing:

Very odd. Are you using any firewalls, virus scanners or so-called security solutions?

What happens if you completely uninstall them? (Merely disabling them still leaves their drivers loaded and running)

Hello, I'm having similar issues with this perfect Open-Source FTP solution.
Almost all files are being downloaded and some files not - thrown in the failed transfers tab. I usually reenqueue them to no success.

Sygate Personal Firewall + AVG Free Antivirus installed on my PC.
Have tried the solution suggested by "botg" and disabled both the firewall and the antivirus software( not uninstalled though).

The failed transfers succeeded with no ENOBUFS - out of memory.

That's fine but I think that's not the proper repeated action we should undertake everytime this error occurs.
Should the firewall be properly configured or somtehing else?

Thanks for this perfect software go to all the contributors of FileZilla.

He-he, OK, but should I use my PC without antivirus and firewall software???
Disabling and stopping them when this problem occurs works, but is a temporary solution.
Please, another guess!
Thanks for help and suggestions!

I don't use firewalls and I don't use AV software. And I also use Windows. No infection ever yet. It just requires proper configuration and a grain of common sense.

I think it's smth with ports that Filezilla opens and their range, next time when FTP-ing I'll check if manipulating them through FileZilla control panel will help.

Sorry, "botg" but this is unacceptable (no antivirus, no firewall). Thanks for your time.

I had the same problem but it was resolved after I made the following changes:

1) Edit > Settings...
2) Connection > FTP > Passive Mode
3) Change the passive mode setting to 'Fall back to active mode'.

Reconnect to the server and retry your file transfers.

Hope this helps.

This is only a workaround, no solution. Passive mode is the recommended one still.

I'm intrigued. If you don't use AV software then how can you be sure your machine hasn't been infected?

The same way you can be sure you're not infected by malware your virus scanner cannot detect.

The best virus and malware scanner is called Brain 1.0.

Okaaaay. Well, thanks for your input but I think I'll stick with the AV software that definitely has saved me from numerous trojans and the firewall that I can see from the logs to be protecting me from daily intrusion attempts. I'm not about to give up peace of mind for the sake of one out of many available FTP clients.

Pity that, as otherwise it's pretty decent software. It's just a shame it's not supported for use in the real world.
