    Hi Andreas,

    Is it a persistent problem or sometimes it works ? What kind of FTP server you connect to ? What are the steps to reproduce ?

    Hello, i have the problem ever and anon, with all typ's of server. For Example: i edit a file, and press alt+s for saving. Then i got this error message. I use the Passive FTP Mode.
    After that i must close aptana. No chance of reproduce.

    I'm allways getting this problem (Aptana Studio 3). I've change the Passive FTP to Active but still having the problem, even if I restart the Aptana Studio.
    I'll use Aptana Studio 2, I don't think this is the issue.

    Hi everyone,

    "server write error" usually means that server dropped the connection or it was a network issue. Could you submit your Aptana Studio log files ?

    Hi Andreas,

    I couldn't find anything related to the issues i the log file provided. We've updated the ftp library recently. Can you try the most recent build of Aptana Studio 3 to see if the problem is still persist.

    I can confirm the issue.

    It is an error when connecting/editing/save files on a remote server. The server runs on Centos linux using Plesk v8.x. I have tried passive and active ftp connections towards the server, both return errors after about 5 minutes. I have been using htmlkit before which didn't give me this error (not to rant, just for info as I really really do like the Aptana interface). Hope this helps a little.

    Best regards,.,.uhhh.,.me;)

    I think this may help solve the Aptana's bug.

    I created 2 connections to the same server.

    The error only happens on the connection where the username has the @ character

    Hi Fernando,

    Could you please explain more in detail about your 2 connections setup ?

    Hi Max,

    About your question.
    In my production hosts, all ftp users have the @ character and the problem occurs

    I made a test in my intranet development server, with 2 different ftp users:

    Connection 1 - ftp user: vu2004
    Connection 2 - ftp user: [email blocked]

    Same host (intranet development server), passive or active mode do not interfere

    The error only occurs at the Connection 2, after some minutes of inactivity (coffee...hehehe)

    Based on feedback, we'll try using investigating the issues surrounding the attached ticket and the '@' character in the username:

    You can follow along on the attached ticket for progress.
