I use a development machine that is not always connected to a network. I
use win2k, so when by ethernet card is not connected, the OS disables the
device and I lose my IP address. So, to enable an IP address, I installed
the w2k loopback adapter.
The cygwin ftpd process misbehaves when the loopback adapter is enabled.
The initial authentication works fine, but any command that involves a PORT
directive (such as LS, PUT, or GET) causes the process to stall for several
seconds before performing the command. If I disable the loopback adapter
and use only an ethernet adapter, things work fine. That gives me a
workaround when I am connected to a network. Unfortunately, I need to do
development when I am completely disconnected from the network and only the
loopback adapter is enabled.
I a looking for ideas on how to approach this.
