rejetto is absolutely correct.  What is needed for this is:  {.round|{.div| {.disk free|C:\.} | 1073741824.}|2.}

HFS ~ HTTP File Server / Re: Files not being served after a while
« on: April 08, 2016, 03:37:22 PM »
I'm using a single wired (cat 5e) Ethernet cable to connect with.  I don't have wireless internet running at this time, and although I can run it, I prefer not to.  I could try wireless, I suppose, but if it's working with a different OS, I think I will not for now.  I wish I could replace the Ethernet card, but all the PCI cards I have will not fit in this server PC. (I don't even know if the massive cards the server takes ARE PCI, although that's sort of what they look like.)  I'd say the issue is either hardware or OS.   Since Win 7 seems to work, it might just be OS (though the hardware isn't perfect.)

I experienced this problem is IE 9, Firefox 43.x.x.x and Opera 12.16.
The most recent time I experienced this might actually have been my own stupidity.  I had changed some HTML code, and left out a "/" on one link.  I fixed this, and so far it's been working alright.  However, this could have been the issue only this once.  Before I'm pretty sure it was something else.

I guess we can call this one "resolved" for now anyway.

I suspect it was a system problem, but don't know why.  It's a server OS for goodness sake--it of all systems should be able to handle serving files.  I did find that sometimes near the end of my tests, the PC would start reporting limited network connectivity.  If I toggled the connection, it would sometimes work for a little while longer.  I ended up with a batch file which restarted HFS and reset the IP every six hours, which did help.  As I said, though, these resets worked for progressively less time until I rebooted the PC.

I had some basic security software, but nothing too aggressive, and nothing I hadn't used before.  I don't think it was to fault.

HFS is still running without a hitch almost a week later on Win 7 HP.  I have more security on it this time, and still no problems.  For now, I'll just continue to wait and see how it holds out.

Oh, one last thing,  whatever part of the BIOS/motherboard which handles time seems to be out of whack.  Every time I check the server it shows a different but entirely wrong time, and it's set to update every few hours, too. It has been doing this for all systems which I have placed on it. I can work with this it, but I don't know if this might have been wreaking havoc on HFS for some reason before.  If so, then why not now?

I hate intermittent "ghost" problems!

I keep getting a PHP error every time I try to reply. If this comment goes through, I'll post a full reply shortly.
Amazing! posting finally worked again.  However, when I try to enter a full reply I get the error again.  Apparently I can't post w.g.e.t as a word, but if I leave it out the post works fine.  Very strange!

Since I could not reply, I gave up and installed Windows 7 Home Premium.   So far, it has been working on this system, but it has only been going for about four consecutive days.  There's still plenty of time for something to go wrong again.

I tried wg*t and got nothing other than a login request and acceptance. The download requests timed out every time, even though the server's connection list showed the request as if it were being severed, but it stayed at 0% with speed and remaining to send showing as "-"  I did not try Telnet, since it always gives me grief.

Using Win PE is an interesting idea, and I'll add it to the list if Win 7 does not work.  I do wonder how you got the SSL to work, I must say.  However, before opening that can off worms I should really read all the other discussions about it here.

I knew the basics of cookies, but not specifically about the ID, so it's good to know--thanks!
It's good to know how to get the session ID, but once I do, what do I do with it? How can I tell if it's bad?

I know Mars really did try to find the issue with this before, and I appreciated it!  Once I updated last time from F to G, the problem did vanish for a while...then it came back.

I don't want to openly post my IP, but if Mars or another SysOp is trying to connect, it is hosting from this IP on port 8888.

Thanks for all the input!

I certainly am not laughing at your suggestion of Win XP.  It's built like a tank, and I still use it for personal purposes.  However, as you mentioned, I'm not so confident in the security of XP.  If it's behind a hardware firewall I don't worry about it, but opening it up to the WWW.... I don't know--is that safe?  Vista is pain, but I've tried 7.  It works, but it's a heavy OS. I do have the option to change the OS, though, so I could try something else. I do want to stick with Windows for this server. though.

I did think about running in a virtual layer.  I hadn't heard of Steadier State (a spin-off of Windows Steady State, I suppose) but I was considering Toolwiz TimeFreeze or some other such software.  The problem with that strategy is that I'm basically allowing the PC to be hacked and trashed, then I just restore it.  I might lake that as a fall-back, but I'd like some good up-front security too.

Thanks for testing, bmartino1!  I am currently using the save edition, 2008 R2 standard.  I could upgrade to Data Center, but didn't think I needed to.  Besides, this is on old server PC.  I don't want to give it such a heavy OS that it can't do anything else.  Do let me know if you notice anything!  :D

Interesting.  The CPU doesn't seem very busy, so I doubt it's that, but I could be wrong, or it could be an number of other things.  I do have the current version of HFS...g, I think.  One time I was having a problem with the server's NAT IP address not renewing.  That issue seems resolved, but I still have a batch file refresh my IP and restart HFS every 5 hours.  That holds of the inevitable, but eventually I just need to reboot.  At this rate, I'll need to add that to the batch file as well.
I'll keep a closer eye/better log of CPU use and keep experimenting around.  Maybe I just need to toss the server OS and use a private/commercial version instead...

Thanks for your input!

i doubt it, but this could be caused by the HFS Cookie session ID...

I'm afraid I don't know what the Cookie session ID even is. You could be right, but how could I find out?  Sorry, I'm still leaning some of the basics here.

Well, I'm back to getting this problem from time to time.
It's happened to me a couple times now, right when a web page passes be off the the default file management system.  I don't know what more info I can add other than that I'm using Firefox this time. Again, though,I really see no way the browser could cause the issue.

I've used HFS on several different OS' and only had a few minor problems.  Now I'm running it on Windows Server 2008, and have a bit more serious of an issue.  I start HFS running, and test it.  Everything seems fine, so I leave it.  Twelve hours later, it still usually works remotely.  Another twelve to twenty four hours later, though, it stops serving files and directories.  However, it is still receiving and logging the GETs.  If I come back to the physical server and restart the program, it usually works again, though sometimes for less time.  After a certain number of restarts, it only serves for 5-10 minutes, and I reboot the server PC and start the whole process over again. I know my network is stable, so that's not it, but the reboot "solution" makes me wonder if it is HFS or the OS.

Any ideas?

if i recall correctly, when you set an empty comment, it is actualy deleted

From my experience, that is correct. Using the default template, just select the file(s) you want to delete the comment on, and click the "comment" button.  Delete all the text in the pop-over box, and close it.  That should be all.

I couldn't find a way, either, so I eventually wrote a program to get this info and load it into a text file.  Then I iframed the text file.  It wasn't perfect, but you can get used space, free space, and probable uptime.  Server time is already included, as I believe was mentioned, so that I just used as it was.

Well, thank you for continuing to try, Mars!  I thought it odd as well, although I still don't know nearly as much as you about this.  Intermittent problems are the worst! 
By the way, I wasn't paying close attention, but it seems that most, if not all of the times  received the error, I was using IE.  I also use Firefox and Opera (12.16), however, so it might have happened on these as well.  I wouldn't think a 200 packet, or anything else could be mistaken for a 301, but I suppose it might be something to keep in the back of our minds.

I'm afraid I have no idea.  If you figure it out, though, I'd be interested!  ;)
