FTP broken [solved]
« on: November 17, 2022, 07:59:14 »
First it does Scanning Filesystem which takes very long. Then it presents an empty panel. Then after some time it shows only the public_html map with a size of 0 bytes and it can't be clicked or expanded.
Other ftp software like WinScp work fine.

I've had trouble with MC - ftp before while winscp was working and i can't help the idea it's something with how mc handles ftp.

Any error in FTP log ?

problem with FTP is that all FTP Server works different. And some FTP server need special handling to work since they are not following the FTP standard.

i didn't have the log window open, but just now i tried again and the window opened but was empty.
I bet it can be something with the server yes. I made a ticket at the hoster to see if they know something.

might be something with MC.. FTP is tricky since no ftp server if the same.. they all work different.
However without a log or something that gives more information it is hard to say what is the problem.
It can be so many different things.

Have you tried enabling Passive Mode..You are running in PORT mode and if you are behind FW/router that require the router to forward ports..
If you are behind a router it is easier to run in passive mode,, try enabling passive mode in the bookmark for the site

Thanks Mathias, i don't know why i haven't tried this before :-[ It solves my problems, ftp now connects fast and seems more reliable.
Winscp also has it as default, strange i didn't notice before.
So glad i can use MC for ftp, for years now my favorite filemanager.
