I am using version 4.0.7 under WinXP, but I get the same problem with the latest beta version. I get the same problem on 2 PCs.

I am connecting with FTP to my Buffalo LinkStation located at home.

Everything works fine until I try to read a large directory (400-500 files) and then I always get a
"Could not retrieve directory listing Transfer aborted. Link to file server lost."

I cut the directory size in half and it works.

Is there a limit on the size of the directory ?

thanks

Please post a full log file showing the problem. Use the latest version if possible.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
