Default Re: Might be...

It has nothing to do with threading.

The problem arises from running multiple copies of FlashFXP at the same time, Only one copy of FlashFXP can bind to the ident port at any given time, ports can not be shared in windows.

So if multiple copies are connecting the wrong ident may be sent.

The same problem can arise if both sides are connecting at the same time, we could check the IP of the ident request and try to match it to the ftp server but depending on ftp server configuration this ip might differ.

The question is not whether we can support multiple idents, but rather can we do it reliably and the answer is no.
