FTP connection details


#1

Hello,

I have configured an FTP remote with a custom port to connect.
The ls, lsd commands works perfectly but when I try to sync from remote to local I get:
error reading source directory: dial tcp 10.xx.xx.xx:42753: connectex: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time

The thing is that I have only one available port for the NAT (8080) and the program seams to try to open other random ports (for parallel??). I have even tried the “–transfers 1 --checkers 1” flags but the same…

Any suggestions??

It sounds like the NAT-ing of FTP connections isn’t working.

Note rclone will need 2 connections open at minimum, one for listing the directory and one for transferring the file with “–transfers 1 --checkers 1”

Can you use rclone copy to copy a single file that you know the name of?

Thanks for the reply!

I managed to copy a single file and in doing that I found that I had insufficient rights to write on that folder…
Now I am trying a --dry-run of a sync on a folder and it works correctly even without the limits…

Sorry for the trouble!

No worries - hope that it works properly.
