Performance of MC is good except FTP Connection - Solved
« on: August 07, 2019, 09:38:37 »
Hi Mathias,

I m using MC 9 final on Win10 Pro x64.
With me, MC is fast but when I do connect to FTP then it take long time to scan folder and sometime it error as below.
With WinSCP and "FTP in totalcmd", they load structure folder is faster MC.

I don't like compare with others FTP but I only mention these FTP client here so that you can improve performance of loading structure folder in FTP when you have free time.

Hi Mathias,

Thank for new Beta Update (v9.1 build 2544). Currently it works better previous but performance is not good when load folder. I attached log of ftp. Please take time to improve.

One issue from FTP. When system scanning folder then I press ESC to abort as guide from list then MC is not responding about 2 minutes to back normal, if in this time I click on MC then it is hang and must kill form Task Manager.

Thanks

it because it fails to connect, why I don't know. properly they are using incompatible SSL/TLS connection ways.
MC are using build in function in windows for it.

Yes aborting it not possible in the same way as local drive.. since MC needs to wait for the server to response. and if it does not accept the abort command. Then MC must wait.

I have no idea what server you connect to.. But all the one try on works.

Might be that the Cipher TLS_RSA_WITH_3DES_EDE_CBC_SHA that you server is using it not enabled in windows. google on it and there are issues with that cipher so windows might have them in there disbaled list. You might need to enable it manually

I think they are using OpenSSL.. MC is using Window Secure Layer for SSL/TLS
I don't know why it hangs there and waits for a timeout, It is weird.

It works with most other FTP servers.. so it is sometimes with the combination of that ftp server software used

The FTP sever software is vsftpd (as it say first in the log you sent), I have recreated the issue with it.
It is not because of OpenSSL. I tried some other using openSSL.. it is the way vsftpd have implemented there secure data connection way. They close the connection in a strange way when they have sent data. In a way that other FTP server software do not.
So it is not a quick and easy fix. There is a risk that it will break how other server works. So not sure If I have time to fix this now. It is a really complex issue to workaround.

Thank you for explaining.
When you have free time you can stop by this case.

Now I hope you can take a look for some bugs and enhancement I fill  :)

With latest beta build (9.1 b2548)
As my observation: MC takes about 2 seconds to load content of selected folder. Performance is good.

Thanks Mathias.
