Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

Yes, I saw that discussion about TLS 1.2, that user got it working by changing one line in the source code and rebuilding. It’s possible that might produce a version of the DLL which would work with MX. It’s also possible that the DLL in the download you mention might support 1.1 or 1.2, and might a...

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

System.net.ftpclient. There is apparently now a later version but with a different name, presumably it now supports 1.1 and 1.2

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

Yes, it looks like the third party ftp component which MX uses will negotiate TLS 1.0 but no later version.

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

I did think that perhaps the OS played some part in the protocol negotiation. What version of Windows are you using - 2003 as in your profile?

I still haven’t had chance to do any testing on my server. It does seem to be pretty conclusive that this is not an issue with MX.

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

I’m hoping to do some testing with my own ftp server later today. What I’m not sure about is what part of the system decides what protocol to use - all I know is that it isn’t my code, I leave it to the ftp component. What I would assume happens is that the ftp component asks the server which protoc...

Re: correction du cumul de pluie

Je pense que vous utilisez un virgule pour nombres? L’éditeur aurait dû le faire correctement. Vous pouvez fermer Cumulus et éditer le fichier avec un éditeur différent. Changez le 8.4 à 8,4 et puis ouvrez Cumulus encore. Veuillez excuser mon pauvre français, j'essaie d'améliorer car je vais habiter...

Quelle est l'erreur que vous voyez? Avez-vous utilisé l'éditeur dans Cumulus pour corriger la valeur?

Re: Raspberry PI and Maplin N96GY stopped working

It could be that the station has stopped logging. If so, a full reset might get it going again.

Note that there is no need to clear the memory on the console, and it has been known to cause problems, as you seem to have found out.

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

I’m certainly no expert at FTPS either, but neither am I in the habit of telling lies. What I was telling you, and what is certainly true, is what the documentation and the comments in the ftp component source code say, that setting “explicit” causes the component to use TLS. Whether that actually h...

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

All I can tell you is that MX is telling the ftp client code to use Explicit ftp encryption mode. According to the documentation (and the source code) Explicit=TLS, Implicit=SSL

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

Can they explain what the problem is, as Cumulus is clearly using TLS and not SSL?

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

It must be using either TLS 1.0, 1.1, or 1.2, because those are the only versions which existed at the time the ftp component was written. My conclusion is that you have some other issue. Are you using active or passive ftp mode, for example?

Re: The handshake failed due to un unexpected packet format

The provider which host my website has disabled SSLv2 and SSLv3 on their servers. Now CumulusMX cannot upload files with SFTP To clarify, MX does not support SFTP (sometimes called SSH FTP), it supports FTP over TLS (sometimes called FTPS). Is Cumulus capable of using TLS 1.0, 1.1 or 1.2 for SFTP? ...

Re: invalid json response

You’ll get that error if your dayfile is empty. By now it should have data in it, so you shouldn’t get the error and should see the data. If not, then you have some kind of issue between Cumulus and the station - the Mono version, perhaps?
