I am a bit confused so I am going to ask several questions to
understand the problem better. Do experience a slowdown on
the machine which runs MC or on the machine to which MC is
connected ? Does it take a long time to read the directory
listing or maybe to download or upload a file ? What do you
expect to do while MC is busy doing something ?
Note that you if you have slow upload - you are most likely
to experience a speedup if you upgrade to the new version.
