Description (last modified by maxence) (diff)
There have been several reports in the forums of FTP connections failing to establish on certain types of FTP servers. This 'metabug' bug groups these similar issues into one.
Here's a list of some of the most recent reports:
These issues lie in the underlying FTP library used by muCommander, Apache Commons-Net.
As a first step, I have updated the Commons-Net library to the latest version (1.5.0 svn snapshot) which fixes several bugs, among which one that could explain (and fix) some of the problems reported in muCommander :
If you are experiencing similar problems, please file a new bug and provide details about the type and version of the FTP server you are connecting to. If you are a developer, you can also help by pinpointing the issue in the particular FTPFileEntryParser implementation of the Commons-Net library.
Commons-net development seems to be rather active these days so I'll keep a close eye on any further updates. I'll also give the edtFTPj library a try to see if it works any better ( http://www.enterprisedt.com/products/edtftpj/ ).
