Logging In takes ages.

I have upgraded to Version 3 and ever since that has occurred, it takes ages for SmartFTP to login to my server.

Basically it just waits and waits and waits and I don't see any folders in the Remote Browser ...

This is what I get in the log

[23:21:50] SmartFTP v3.0.1026.9

[23:21:56] MLSD

It then just waits and waits at MLSD and nothing happens.

I have tried refreshing, closing SmartFTP and reconnecting and nothing happens. The problem still occurs.

Any way of solving this?

Try to switch to passive mode (PASV) as described here:
