Subject [jira] [Commented] (NET-620) Strict CRLF handling in Commons-NET FTP breaks compatibility with some FTP servers
Date Thu, 02 Mar 2017 23:24:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-620?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15893231#comment-15893231
] 

Sebb commented on NET-620:
--------------------------

You should be able to subclass FTPClient and override the method.
No need to edit the code.

BTW 3.6 was released recently and my suggestion is based on the current code, but I don't
think that area has changed much.

> The fix for FTP.java in NET-401 to switch from using BufferedReader to CRLFLineReader
breaks the ability to connect to servers that have varying LF and CRLF line termination in
the banner.
> I've run into 2 different cases with slightly different banner configs, one where you
end up hung indefinitely by not reading far enough (this is the sigquit from when it is hung):

> I do have hex data available to show the source data, but the end result is there's a
mix of 0d0a (CRLF) and 0a (LF) termination in the FTP banner (220-)
> I can modify the library to undo the NET-401 change, but ideally it'd be nice to have
a strictNewline type of setting you could set on the FTPClient object to decide if you want
to be ultra-strict, or ultra compatible. I will be filing a defect with Cisco about this as
well, but it would be great if the FTPClient had the option to handle it instead of forced
compatibility with no options to relax it.
> This is kind of hinted at in one of the comments on NET-402 by Bogdan Drozdowski on 12/Apr/11
> "So, on one hand, we stop supporting non-conforming servers (which could mean that we're
supporting less servers now), but on the other hand we're fixing a bug that someone has found
in a real-life system."
> Giving users the option to relax the conformity requirements (but strict by default)
would allow the end user to choose the option.
> Any thoughts on this?
