Bug still exist in mc-4.6.1a-30.fc6 from FC6
Comment 2 Leonard den Ottolander 2006-11-02 16:26:41 EST
Problem does *not* seem to exist for mc-4.6.1a-33 (anymore) (rebuild on FC4).
Compare bug #213212.
Comment 3 Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-11-02 16:39:51 EST
Will test it soon, but mine problem is with shell connection not FTP.

And update. version mc-4.6.1a-30.fc6 works fine while connecting to FC6 station
or FC5 station. Its still not working while connecting to Solaris SunOS 5.9
Comment 4 Leonard den Ottolander 2006-11-03 13:36:10 EST
The issue is not whether you use ftp or ssh, but if you use ipv4 or ipv6 (at
least that is where I assume the bug was).
Comment 5 Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-11-15 18:51:41 EST
I tried mc without ipv6 patch you provided but it doesn't solve the problem
Comment 6 Jindrich Novy 2006-11-20 09:26:23 EST
This should be fixed since mc-4.6.1a-35 which is now built in rawhide. Please
let me know whether the passive ftp mode now works for you. I'll release FC5/FC6
updates as soon as I see possitive feedback.
Comment 7 Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-11-21 09:40:21 EST
Hi, I tested this version and its working fine. I could connect to FTP sites in
passive mode and using shell connection to SunOS 5.9 I reported before as
broken. For me it seems that problem is solved. I'm waiting now for official FC5
and FC6 package so I can update all my systems. Thanks!
Comment 8 Fedora Update System 2006-11-22 11:25:34 EST
mc-4.6.1a-35.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
Comment 9 Piotr Wojciechowski 2006-11-22 11:40:45 EST
Thanks, can we have official update for FC5 too ?
Comment 10 Jindrich Novy 2006-11-22 12:05:01 EST
Yes, the FC5 update was pushed to testing first and I will move it to final in a
few days if no breakage is reported.
