Filelist request sometimes returns "Unknown file type"

Asked by Jay Hollingsworth on 2015-02-22

A filelist request sometimes returns "Unknown file type". This is on maybe 10% of the users I try to connect with.

When I search for alternates for a file, these users will show up and I download from them - I just can't get (or browse) their filelists.

All my ports and tcp/udp port forwarding must be set up correctly, otherwise it wouldn't work the other 90% of the time.

This isn't intermittent - there are certain users on certain hubs I just can't get filelists from.

They're using ancient client versions that don't support partial file list requests or other modern features. Try a full filelist download in these cases.
