Subject [jira] [Created] (NET-502) Apache FTPClient doesn't handle common responses to PWD
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2013 17:41:13 GMT
Barry Kelly created NET-502:

             Summary: Apache FTPClient doesn't handle common responses to PWD
                 Key: NET-502
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: FTP
    Affects Versions: 3.2
            Reporter: Barry Kelly
            Priority: Minor

Common FTP servers (like vsftpd) responses' to PWD don't have a commentary as per RFC959.

vsftpd, MockFtpServer and others respond thusly:

> 257 "/"

The current handling in FTPClient.__parsePathname simply returns everything after "257 ".
This breaks other code that relies on Apache FTPClient, like the Camel FTP2 component.

I suggest that, for increased resilience, this brief response be special-cased.

vsftpd maintainer has been notified too, but it's just an email address.
