Description Gene Czarcinski 2002-07-30 07:59:24 EDT
Description of Problem:
Even when a numeric ip address is used in a bookmark or manually entered, gftp
does a reverse dns lookup on the ip address and if it is not defined, it winds
up with a "bad name" -- currently "unused."  If the link stalls/times out for
some reason, gftp will try to restart the link using the name "unused." and will

This is a pain since even redhat does not always keep reverse lookup up-to-date.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gftp and select some server with no dns reverse lookup defined (such as
ftp.beta.redhat.com curently).
2. note that after the connection is established that the "name" will be
"unused." even if it was manually entered.

Actual Results:

Expected Results:
"leave as ip address if so entered ... do not do reverse lookup (or at lease
make it an option)

I sent an email bug report on this to the upstream maintainer masneyb@gftp.org

If this has been reported upstream, closing here. We'll pull 
a new gftp version when available.
