Any ideas why connections made using wxWidgets' wxFTP are slow when run in windows? I made an application that will manage files on an ftp server using wxWidgets. When the program is run in windows, the program is able to authenticate quickly enough but beyond that and things like FileExists and GetOuputStream take hellishly long to complete. Whereas the linux version runs really fast. What's even more interesting is that the windows version run under wine runs just as fast as the linux version. Any ideas how to fix this?
