#8093 closed Patch (fixed)

Increase number of retries (it's only 3) at FZS when using PASV and Port range

Please, can you make this tiny change?

In the ControlSocket.cpp file change

unsigned int retries = 3;


unsigned int retries = 10;

or any other value (please, at least 5).

I have a FZS that sometimes fails when using PASV and a given range of ports, because in that case the server does not use a free port given by the OS, but tries to create a socket in a free port of that range, and if it is not free it tries with the next one up to 3 times before failing with the answer: '421 Could not create socket'.
The solution can be just to increase a little the number of attempts to find a free port where to create the socket for the data connection (the aforementioned unsigned int retries = 3;).

Thank you in advance.
