#2975 closed defect (thirdparty)

ftp overwrite of a file produces a zero length file

Reported by: Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: ftp Version: 3.1.2
Severity: normal Keywords: overwrite
Cc: Architecture:


On Mac OS X 10.5.6, when I ftp a file that will overwrite an older copy of it, I get the Overwrite dialog on the Transfer screen. I say yes to overwrite. Cyberduck then claims it has downloaded the file, but a zero length file of the same name is created.

Doing the ftp again doesn't trigger the Overwrite dialog and correctly copies the file.

This happens frequently. The Log Drawer is blank. I am ftp'ing a file from a OSF Tru64 machine to a Macbook.

  • Resolution set to thirdparty
  • Status changed from new to closed

Please post the transcript from View → Log Drawer. I suppose this is a server issue.

Hi I have the same problem - what came of this bug report after? It says 'closed defect: thirdparty' what does that mean? How can I fix it? (I don't want to stop using cyberduck - I love it!)
