Subject RE: [net] "truncated server reply" on FTPClient.storeFile
Date Thu, 21 Jul 2005 20:25:10 GMT
Ok, I figured this out.  It was a subtle timing problem stemming from the
fact that I run the FTP actions on separate threads.  A second operation was
being initiated before the storeFile was complete :-(

Everything is working fine now.

Subject: [net] "truncated server reply" on FTPClient.storeFile

I'm using version 1.4.

Every time I try to use the storeFile method, I get a
MalformedServerReplyException with the message "Truncated server reply:" at
line  I have tried to send a file to 4 different servers and I
get the same error every time.  I have searched all the archives I can find,
and I find no mention of a problem like this.

Any ideas?

I'm assuming it's something on my (client) end since it occurs on every
server I try.  Further, trying a command line ftp utility and 'put'ting a
file works just fine.

The code I'm trying is identical to the various samples I've seen on the
net, here's the fragment in question (note that the connection is working
since I can list and get files, I just can't send them):

    FTPClient ftp = getFtpConnection();

    // Open a stream to read the file
    File localFile = new File(localDir, fileName);
    InputStream localStream = new FileInputStream(localFile);

    // Send the file
    _ftpResults.setOperation("PUT: " + fileName + " --> " +
    ftp.storeFile(fileName, localStream);
