Subject [jira] Created: (NET-141) FTPClient/DefaultSocketFactory does not regard default timeout

FTPClient/DefaultSocketFactory does not regard default timeout
--------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: NET-141
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NET-141
             Project: Commons Net
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.4 Final
            Reporter: Christian Hufgard


Hi,

If executing the following code
 String hostname = "localhost";
 FTPClient client = new FTPClient();
 client.setDefaultTimeout(1000);
 client.connect(hostname);

against a ftp server that ignores the connection attempt (e.g. is firewalled/malfunctoned),
there will be no exception after 1000 ms. The exception will be thrown after a default timeout
of three minutes. (Three minutes on a debian/ and a suse machines. Might be different on other
platforms).

JavaDoc says:
public void setDefaultTimeout(int timeout)
  Set the default timeout in milliseconds to use when opening a socket.


Digging through the code I found, that DefaultSocketFactory which is used be SocketClient
does not care about any value set with this method. It creates a new Socket with Socket(hostname,
port) and relies on the VMs behaviour.

To get this fixed I set a custom SocketFactory with client.setSocketFactory(socketFactory);
that uses a timeout for socket connection.

This bug is also in 1.4.1, but this value is not listed...
