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Sorry, no support for repository FileZilla versions, which are often outdated, like yours is.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

I know repository version is unsupported, but Debian testing now suffers the same issue and: it isn't outdated (3.39.0) and but it uses fresher sqlite (3.26.0) AND gnutls (3.6.5).

Maybe the problem is the gnutls version after all.

*sigh* The Debian package maintainer for the filezilla package has decided to use system ciphers, yet on Debian the libgnutls30 package does not define system ciphers. Of course trying to use non-existing system ciphers fails.
