#314 closed bug (wontfix)

CheckForLatestVersion using FTPDownload is broken

It's broken. Not sure when this happened, but it appears to be a problem with our ftp. using an anonymous login connects OK, switches directories OK, but cannot get a simple file listing (ls). Transfer of a file fails too.

Is it really worth spending a lot of time fitting - or simply report the locally installed version and send the user to the web page so they can compare the numbers themselves. If it's not an automatic update - that checks on its own - is anybody really using it?

it does appear to work - but slowly. It first tries to enter into "EPSV = extended passive mode", which eventually times out. then it tries "PASV = passive mode, which works (in binary transfer mode). But I can't see how to set this up from the WM operation, so live with it this way...
