• Zip Error 255 On Uploaded Files

    From DesotoFireflite@VERT/VALHALLA to All on Monday, February 07, 2022 14:18:38
    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 01:28:53p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> append key into keybuf: 4E (N)
    2/7 01:29:13p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> Executing external: c:\SBBS\exec\unzip -tqq c:\SBBS\data\dirs\bbs\smeg.zip
    2/7 01:29:13p Node 1 <DesotoFireflite> attempted to upload smeg.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. :-)

    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*
    Volume in drive C has no label.
    Volume Serial Number is B8D6-272E

    Directory of C:\SBBS\EXEC

    04/19/2009 06:51 PM 204,800 unzip.exe
    1 File(s) 204,800 bytes
    0 Dir(s) 818,274,295,808 bytes free

    C:\Users\C.G. Learn>DIR C:\SBBS\EXEC\ZIP*
    Volume in drive C has no label.
    Volume Serial Number is B8D6-272E

    Directory of C:\SBBS\EXEC

    04/24/2014 11:42 AM 290,816 zip.exe
    1 File(s) 290,816 bytes
    0 Dir(s) 818,274,148,352 bytes free

    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.

    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).

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

    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?
