Default Transfer bug

Windows2k sp2
Flash Build 866

This was brought up in earler 2.0 rc's, but now i think ive figured out whats causing it.

"Transferred: xxxx.xxx 0 bytes in 02:18 (1,00 KBps)"

It seems to be if you have files queued, and flash has to change dir's to transfer them (assuming the dir is not cached), it relists the dir...but if for some reason the list fails (lots of sites i know dont always like to list for me, have to abort/redo to make it work...), if you abort, then when you restart flash won't try and relist, it will just transfer files, but im assuming the previous failed list overwrites some stored entries of the files/lenghts.
Steps to make work (easist way i know of):
1. turn off directory caching
2. queue some files up
3. change directories
4. start queue
5. abort transfer of directory list
6. restart queue

This might be hard to reproduce if the directory list actually works fine, mine stall before they start, so its kinda common for me...

Do you happen to know which ftp server software is being used?

FlashFXP has a backup to getting the size from the file listing, it sends the SIZE command to the ftp server. I suspect that this ftp server doesn't support the SIZE command.

I'm pretty sure its glftpd, and I'll run some tests later on, but I dont ever remember seeing flash do any size commands when transfering it.

I did this cmd on it tho

size xxxxxxxxx.r00
213 15055848

so size does work on it...

The SIZE command isn't shown in the status window.

Every file from this point does like this, I tried pausing the queue and then resuming it, but that had no affect. Then I paused the queue, refreshed the directory list and then restarted it...and magically:
Transferred: file.r38 15,000,000 bytes in 01:27 (166.50 KBps)
So it deffently has something to do with aborting the list....

On a side note, is SIZE the only command that flash does not display? Might make things eaiser if there was an option to turn on output all all commands (also, is there somewhere i can change the scrollbuffer of the status window?)

Oh you're FXPing, for some reason I thought you weren't. I dunno why I thought that.

SIZE isn't issued when FXPing unless you are resuming a transfer, which explains the results you are getting.

What you see is to be expected unless the listing is refreshed.

SIZE isn't displayed because it confused alot of people, most ftp clients don't use SIZE and I think this is why people didn't understand it. Rather than have to explain it to everyone it was easier to just hide it. Due to the nature of how it was hidden there isn't a easy way to make it viewable. I may consider this later on down the road if people really want to see it.
