with certain ftp URLs iGetter is stalled in 'connecting'

in particular, I'm always seeing this with:
ftp://ftp.ucsd.edu/pub/alpha/tcl/alphatk/Alphatk.dmg

an otherwise satisfied user :-)

Hello Bjarne,
Thank you for your report.

At first look it seems the FTP server of ucsd.edu uses some strange type of restriction on a time basis. There is a response timeout of 1 min. and 15 sec. on each request. By default iGetter waits 60 sec. for a server to respond to a request. You can set the connections preferences option "Timeout connection attempts after '#' sec" to 80 sec. Now iGetter must download from the ucsd.edu FTP server.

Regards,
iGetter Support
