Command: MLSD

I've always run in Passive mode, and the only other time I've had a similar problem was when trying to connect to a very large directory, which is not the case here. Just in case, I even tried setting my default remote directory on one server to the cgi-bin, which only has a few files in it. It times out, regardless.

I've downgraded to, and it connects without problem or delay. Logfile is attached. Forgive me if this is a repeat of something already posted.

Thanks for your attention and for your hard work on this tremendous product.

Check your firewall configuration. After the update to the executable of FileZilla obviously has changed. Some Firewalls (and virus scanners) tend to block changed programs.
