Bug reports / Re: HFS needs restart
« on: November 17, 2023, 11:41:21 AM »
The good news is that v3 seems to be stable, no crash since I installed it.

Turning it into service: is that something I can do externally? Our software also has service mode, but as far as I recall, our installer does that programmatically, registering the software as a service through Windows API. Also, I also seem to remember that a service running in the SYSTEM account has issues having access to the network, which again may be an issue as long as HFS should serve files from other computers in the network.

Anyway, this is rather just an aesthetical issue, the old one was nicer with the system tray icon.

Hi Leo,

I updated to 2.4 only after 2.3 started to have problems, after years of working seamlessly without any change on our end. I believe the reason was rather that spiders started to download thousands of files daily, and I guess HFS crashed due to the large number of downloads (possibly a memory leak or something similar).

Regarding 3.0: I installed this, it is a nice stuff (the remote HTTP admin is particularly useful, as well as the HTTPS), What is a bit unclear is whether that PowerShell window can be made to run in the background (a system tray icon was nicer for 2.x), and not to open the browser on each startup.

Let's see whether 3.0 will have the same problems or not...

Hi Leo,

Thanks for the suggestion. However, unfortunately the problem must be elsewhere: this is our server computer, all the other services (such as FTP, TeamViewer, invoicing, building heating, files) work seamlessly, HFS is the only one which fails on almost daily basis, and with F4+F4 it continues working.

Let me know if you have any other ideas. I'd be glad to supply logs, but the default on-screen log certainly doesn't show anything (the last log is about the last downloaded file).

We're successfully using HFS for years. Lately we started to have problems: after a while (hours or days) HFS stops answering HTTP requests, restarting it from the menu (or F4 + F4) solves the problem.

I'm not a network expert, but I did some basic checks:
– HFS does answer if I connect locally as localhost, but doesn't answer if I connect locally as from the IP of the local network interface;
– TcpView shows the connection in LISTENING state, and this looks identical after restart;
– the only suspicious thing in TcpView is that about 10 connections are in CloseWait state;
– turning off the firewall doesn't help (and HFS is let through anyway);
– turning off the Defender doesn't help;
– sometimes it shows banning, but other times it doesn't, I don't think that's the problem.

I tried upgrading to the 2.4.0. RC7, that is even worse than the old 2.3 (failing on almost daily basis, while the old one failed on weekly basis).

Any ideas what else to check?
