• Zip Error 255 On Uploaded Files

    From DesotoFireflite@1:103/705 to All on Mon Feb 7 14:18:38 2022
    Whenever I, or someone tries to upload a zip file to me, it fails. I get the following on my Terminal Server window, This is me testing for the complaint:

    (Done with Sysop Command ;UPLOAD with the stray files in the directory)

    2/7 01:28:36p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> Executing external: c:\SBBS\exec\unzip -tqq c:\SBBS\data\dirs\bbs\DND50A2T.ZIP
    2/7 01:28:37p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> attempted to upload DND50A2T.ZIP to Main BBS Programs (ZIP error code 255)

    2/7 01:29:17p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> append key into keybuf: 4E (N)

    (Done we me uploading from a different computer to the bbs after deleting the stray files)

    2/7 01:46:57p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> Executing external: c:\SBBS\exec\unzip -tqq c:\SBBS\data\dirs\user\DND50A2T.ZIP
    2/7 01:46:57p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> attempted to upload DND50A2T.ZIP to Main Uploads (ZIP error code 255)
    2/7 01:47:02p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> append key into keybuf: 59 (Y)

    (This is my unzip command line)

    %@unzip -Cojqq %f %s -d %g

    I even tried %@unzip.exe -Cojqq %f %s -d %g
    and %@unzip@. -Cojqq %f %s -d %g

    This does not occur if someone uploads an exe, or other files, just ZIP's.
    The File Date on the unzip is 4/19/2009, that was included in the sbbs319b.zip.

    Note, it does not Throw an error to the error log when this happens.

    I'm usin 3.19c, on windows 10 32bit. I thought I cured all the problems, but this one cropped up yesterday. This was the first upload since changing to 3.19b, then going to 3.19c

    Any Ideas?

    Can you run "dir c:\sbbs\exec\unzip*" and paste the output here?

    (This is my unzip command line)

    %@unzip -Cojqq %f %s -d %g

    It's the *testable* file type command-line (for "zip") that's being executed here, not the extractable file type.

    SCFG->File Options->Testable Files...

    I even tried %@unzip.exe -Cojqq %f %s -d %g
    and %@unzip@. -Cojqq %f %s -d %g

    You were messing with the wrong command-line. :-)

    Note, it does not Throw an error to the error log when this happens.

    I wouldn't expect it to either. :-)

    It's weird that your system would require the %. unless you had a file or directory named "unzip" in exec.

    I don't understand it either, as I haven't needed it till I did the update, and I can't swear to that, as I only know for sure It started with 3.19c, I was only on 3.19b for 2 days and no uploads were done in those 2 days. Hope this helps.

    I wasn't going to say anything, as it only happened once yesterday, but since I'm running 3.19c, it may be related to this issue. I uploaded 5 files to my bbs directory yesterday, and went back to check to see if it took ok, and picked up the FILE_ID.DIZ's ok. Everything was fine, then I quit and went back to the main menu, and did a "N" for new mail, and chose All, and it displayed all the new files I uploaded...I logged off, and logged back on, and everything did as it should then. I have not been able to duplicate it, but I thought I would mention it just the same in case it may be related to the other issue.

    Thanks for all you do.

    So far, yours is the only system I know of to have this issue (requiring the ".exe" be added to executed zip and unzip command-lines on Windows).

    That figures :) I have no idea what changed to cause it. I haven't installed any new programs in windows, nor any new modifications in the computer. Only thing I have done is the update to sbbs.

    Something else to check: are "zip" and "unzip" listed in SCFG->External Programs->Native Program List?

    They are both in there as ZIP.EXE and UNZIP.EXE

    I wasn't going to say anything, as it only happened once yesterday,
    but since I'm running 3.19c, it may be related to this issue. I
    uploaded 5 files to my bbs directory yesterday, and went back to check
    to see if it took ok, and picked up the FILE_ID.DIZ's ok. Everything
    was fine, then I quit and went back to the main menu, and did a "N"

    issue.

    I'm not clear... are you describing a newly observed issue here?

    Yes, but only if you think it's related to the zip, unzip problem. As I said, I can not reproduce it, and it only happened once. It may have been just a fluke or something related to memory. I'm really not concerened at this point about it since I can't reproduce it.

    Whenever I, or someone tries to upload a zip file to me, it
    fails. I get the following on my Terminal Server window, This is >>>> me testing for the complaint:

    Can you run "dir c:\sbbs\exec\unzip*" and paste the output
    here?

    (This is my unzip command line)

    %@unzip -Cojqq %f %s -d %g
    It's the *testable* file type command-line (for "zip") that's DM>>> being executed here, not the extractable file type.

    OK, you got me, old age is hell. I added the "%." to the end of
    all the zip and unzip commands in all the file areas, and
    everything is working fine.. I didn't even see the testable
    area till you said something.

    You saved me from myself yet another time LMFAO, Thank You So
    Much.

    Can you paste the output of the "dir" command I asked about about?

    Here it is for both UNZIP and ZIP

    C:\Users\C.G. Learn>DIR C:\SBBS\EXEC\UNZIP*

    It's weird that your system would require the %. unless you had a DM>> file or directory named "unzip" in exec.

    I don't understand it either, as I haven't needed it till I did the
    update, and I can't swear to that, as I only know for sure It started
    with 3.19c, I was only on 3.19b for 2 days and no uploads were done in
    those 2 days. Hope this helps.

    So far, yours is the only system I know of to have this issue (requiring the ".exe" be added to executed zip and unzip command-lines on Windows).

    That figures :) I have no idea what changed to cause it. I haven't installed any new programs in windows, nor any new modifications in the computer. Only thing I have done is the update to sbbs.

    Something else to check: are "zip" and "unzip" listed in SCFG->External Programs->Native Program List?

    They are both in there as ZIP.EXE and UNZIP.EXE

    Oh? That's unusal.

    Here's the default Native Program List:
    ╔[■][?]══════════════════════╗
    ║ Native Program List ║
    ╠════════════════════════════╣
    ║ │cmd.exe ║
    ║ │sh ║
    ║ │csh ║
    ║ │bash ║
    ║ │node ║
    ║ │smbutil ║
    ║ │zip ║
    ║ │unzip ║
    ║ │pkzip25 ║
    ║ │mp3info ║
    ║ │ ║
    ╚════════════════════════════╝

    If yours has "zip.exe" and "unzip.exe" instead, I think that explains the issue. Non-native programs are attempted to be run using dosxtrn.exe (a 16-bit DOS program) on Windows, which is not going to successfully run a 32-bit executable (such as zip.exe or unzip.exe).

    I wasn't going to say anything, as it only happened once yesterday,
    but since I'm running 3.19c, it may be related to this issue. I
    uploaded 5 files to my bbs directory yesterday, and went back to check
    to see if it took ok, and picked up the FILE_ID.DIZ's ok. Everything
    was fine, then I quit and went back to the main menu, and did a "N"
    for new mail, and chose All, and it displayed all the new files I
    uploaded...I logged off, and logged back on, and everything did as it
    should then. I have not been able to duplicate it, but I thought I
    would mention it just the same in case it may be related to the other
    issue.

    I'm not clear... are you describing a newly observed issue here?

    Yes, but only if you think it's related to the zip, unzip problem. As I said, I can not reproduce it, and it only happened once. It may have been just a fluke or something related to memory. I'm really not concerened at this point about it since I can't reproduce it.

    I'm not clear: *what* only happened once? I don't see a problem in your description of the scenario. <shrug>

    Let's leave it be for now, as it only happened once. To put it simply, after I uploaded a few files using the ;upload command, from the "T" file menu, I quit the gile menu using "Q", and went the check for any new mail that might have come in, when I hit "N" for new mail, Then "A" for all, it listed all the new FILES I uploaded instead of any new mail. The only way I could stop it from doing this was to log out, and log back in. Hope this is clearer. As I say, no need to persue it, as it only happened once, and I can't duplicate the issue. The only reason I mentioned it was in case it was related to the issue we were having with the zip and unzip issue. Personally, I think it was a one time fluke.

    Maybe double-check that setting for your user account?

    Something else to check: are "zip" and "unzip" listed in
    SCFG->External Programs->Native Program List?

    They are both in there as ZIP.EXE and UNZIP.EXE

    Oh? That's unusal.

    Here's the default Native Program List:
    ╔[■][?]══════════════════════╗
    ║ Native Program List ║
    ╠════════════════════════════╣
    ║ │cmd.exe ║
    ║ │sh ║
    ║ │csh ║
    ║ │bash ║
    ║ │node ║
    ║ │smbutil ║
    ║ │zip ║
    ║ │unzip ║
    ║ │pkzip25 ║
    ║ │mp3info ║
    ║ │ ║
    ╚════════════════════════════╝

    If yours has "zip.exe" and "unzip.exe" instead, I think that
    explains the issue. Non-native programs are attempted to be run
    using dosxtrn.exe (a 16-bit DOS program) on Windows, which is not
    going to successfully run a 32-bit executable (such as zip.exe or
    unzip.exe).

    That makes sense, but I didn't change them. I'll go back in and change
    them to just zip and unzip then, and try it. I guess I will end up
    removing the %. also when I give it a test. Seriously, I can't
    remember how long it's been this way with no issues.

    Yeah, I don't recall them ever defaulting to "zip.exe" and "unzip.exe". And how would have worked before is also a mystery. :-)

    Well, anyway, the mystery is solved. It may be a carryover from when I was running win 7, just can't remember why It got changed. Thanks

    I wasn't going to say anything, as it only happened once
    yesterday, but since I'm running 3.19c, it may be related to this
    issue. I uploaded 5 files to my bbs directory yesterday, and went
    back to check to see if it took ok, and picked up the FILE_ID.DIZ's
    ok. Everything was fine, then I quit and went back to the main
    menu, and did a "N" for new mail, and chose All, and it displayed
    all the new files I uploaded...I logged off, and logged back on,
    and everything did as it should then. I have not been able to
    duplicate it, but I thought I would mention it just the same in
    case it may be related to the other issue.

    I'm not clear... are you describing a newly observed issue here?

    Yes, but only if you think it's related to the zip, unzip problem.
    As I said, I can not reproduce it, and it only happened once. It may
    have been just a fluke or something related to memory. I'm really not
    concerened at this point about it since I can't reproduce it.

    I'm not clear: *what* only happened once? I don't see a problem in
    your description of the scenario. <shrug>

    Let's leave it be for now, as it only happened once. To put it simply,
    after I uploaded a few files using the ;upload command, from the "T"
    file menu, I quit the gile menu using "Q", and went the check for any
    new mail that might have come in, when I hit "N" for new mail, Then
    "A" for all, it listed all the new FILES I uploaded instead of any new
    mail. The only way I could stop it from doing this was to log out, and
    log back in. Hope this is clearer. As I say, no need to persue it, as
    it only happened once, and I can't duplicate the issue. The only
    reason I mentioned it was in case it was related to the issue we were
    having with the zip and unzip issue. Personally, I think it was a one
    time fluke.

    What you're describing sounds like expected (as designed) behavior for a user that has
    "[F] Automatic New File Scan : On"
    set in their default configuration.

    Maybe double-check that setting for your user account?

    Yes, it was on, and I left it on, just had never seen this before. All I remember seeing before when you do a "T" to go to the file menu, it checked for new files then, and I can see that in the default.src, but I didn't seen anything in the new message scan in the default.src that would cause that under "N", as it shows "msg_new_scan". Anyway, since you say it's like expected (as designed) behavior, lets close the issue. As always, thank for the help, and putting up with me :).

    why are having so many problems with synchronet, dude? it's essentially a turnkey bbs software.

    maybe you are overthinking things and trying too hard.

    Well, to be honest, I neglected it for a few years, now that I decided to give it the attention I should have been doing, I found a lot of broke things. Everything seems to be running smooth now.
