I have noticed a considerable slowdown when browsing my FTP server.
I have a folder that contains multiple "Remote Items", and I've noticed that the server connects to each in turn when I list the folder they are in.
For my purposes, that doesn't scale well, and I'm going to have to re-organize my folder structure - unless it is possible to stop this initial connection?
Ideally, I'd like it to list the folders, and only CONNECT when I traverse into a remote item location.
When a folder is listed, a connection has to be made.
You can prevent that by putting remote items in virtual subfolders. For example:
and so on. That way you can list the virtual folders and navigate only to the one you want to access.
Thanks @ben, that is as I suspected.
It's inconvenient in my given scenario, but I'll work something out.
Please consider a feature request that doesn't attempt to connect to the remotes until they are actually requested.
