#6567 closed defect (fixed)

Cannot login to FTP with empty password

Reported by: czechxteam Owned by:
Priority: low Milestone: 4.3
Component: ftp Version: 4.2.1
Severity: minor Keywords:
Cc: Architecture:
Platform: Mac OS X 10.7


How to reproduce
On any server create FTP account with username but empty password. Create bookmark in Cyberduck and try to connect. In login window you enter username and leave password field empty. Click to Login button.

Current state
Nothing happens – you must enter any password (at least one character).

Wanted state
You can login to FTP with username but without password.

Create password on server side or use another FTP client (Filezilla).

Anonymous login has special Username, you can't use it as workaround.
This might occure in all FTP-like (SFTP/FTP-SSL) connection.

The following workaround should work. Enter any character in the password prompt field and thereafter deleting it again. The password will then be set to an empty string.
