Known Errors

These are the known errors in our products, logged as reported with versions and platforms affected as well as corrections and work-arounds.

This list is largely historical, since it records all problems that have been reported throughout G&R history. Only the most recently reported problems still exist, unless you are using a very old copy of the product, in which case you should update the product to the most recent version.

E1254: Gftp, incoming connections could leave zombie

Product: Gftp
Platform: UNIX/Linux
Status: fixed in 6.6, fix available in 6.5
Last updated: 2013-03-01 08:52:57

When a client connects to Gftp a child process is forked to receive the
connection and handle the FTP session. If the client dropped the
connection before the FTP child process received it, the child process
would hang in the connect receive routine as a zombie process. The fix
adds a 9 second timeout to the connect receive.

There is no work-around.
