  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • When a FTP client sends a CLOSE right after a OPENDIR command,
    it will result in errors in the DataPower logs. For example:
    "File transfer failed. Reason: 3 Write error".
    
    In this case the connection will not be broken, the FTP client
    will get the expected status reply with the error code.
