Server closes when trying to drag and drop large files

0 posts in this topic

Hi, I'm using 1.8.5-stable-a18eba7 on two Macs with El Capitan and, although file transfers now seem to work, they fail when the file is too large. The server log shows the following messages when using drag and drop to transfer a large file —about 500 MB— to the client:

And this is the client log (private data removed):

When copying small files it works fine. I've been testing with different file sizes to see where the threshold is, and it seems to start failing when the file size is larger than 10 MB. The results are not consistent, though, some files of about 13.5 MB in size may get copied perfectly and 11 or 10 MB files may still fail. It looks like the server might be timing out or something.

 

Another thing I've observed is that file names with commas in them get truncated to the first comma.

 

Is there an imposed limit on file transfers? Could it be possible for Synergy GUI to display some sort of progress indicator if large file transfers were possible?
