MFMT command intermittent on FTP

Postby Ian Clarke » Thu Nov 24, 2016 6:25 pm

We are having problems with the MFMT command not working when using FTP. It works some of the time but fails repeatedly on larger files (greater than 1MB). I have updated to the latest version but the problem persists. Using Filezilla to issue the MFMT on the same file works instantly every time.

Once the MFMT command fails, even PASV commands fail until Bestsync moves on to the next file and then communication is restored.

Extract from transfer log showing the problem:

It seems that your FTP server has problem when processing MFMT command if the file name contains blank-space.
Please try a file name that does not contain blank-space to see if the problem can be avoided.

The file did not have a blank space.

I have run a test using a big file (1.8MB) and small file (7 bytes). Again, the log shows that after the MFMT command for the big file, things go wrong but the small file is fine.

Is there a more detailed log that I can get to which might help identify what is going wrong?

We have been using Bestsync for about 5 years and this problem has only started with recent versions.

May be BestSync is not very compatible with your FTP server, if you can give us a test account (send email to risefly@risefly.com), we'd like to debug BestSync with your FTP server.
