Ftp transfert error - "weird server reply" when download from server

srk974 10 years ago updated by Alexander Blach (Developer) 10 years ago 6
I got a synology server and when I try to download files from the ftp server I got a error message "weird server reply" and no files downloaded in the app.
I should try many times to get the files.
I think I got this messages when I download more than one file.
Can you do something for me please?
Best regards,
Never heard of that error message before :)

Please enable the "Debug Log" setting in the connection's settings and try to download the file again.

Textastic should create a log file in the local "logs" directory. Please send this file to support@textasticapp.com so I can have a look at it.
This problem com from a long distance, Reunion island if you know ;-)
I send you the log in few minutes.
Hope you can resolve the problem
Me again ! ;-)
I resolve my problem, it was a configuration problem from my ftp server ! My fault , sorry ;-)
This message appear when you limit the numbers of IPs to connect to the ftp server, in my case the limit was 2, I change to 5.
Now I got a FTPS problem... In FTP mode all is good, but I cannot have a FTPS connection....
Now it's a SSL error...
Great to hear that you could resolve the issue with your FTP conneciton.

Regarding FTPS: Did you disable "Verify SSL certificate" yet? You need to disable this setting if you're using self-signed certificates.
A very big THANK YOU Alexander ! My problem with FTP was a FTPES problem, this type of connection didn't exist since the new version 2.2 , I try it now with the new version and it work great !
So, thank you again !

Ps : it's not possible to download empty files from a ftp server? I try and it doesn't work...

For community information,
If the error message "weird server reply" appear, check :
- the number of ftp connection allow, you try to transfert 5 files and you allow 2 connections to your server, change to 5 or transfert 2 by 2
Hrmm, the file is only created if at least one byte is downloaded. So, yes, that probably means that you can't download empty files. I'll put it on my todo list.
