You feed ftp requests through squid ? I guess it never occurred to
me :-)

well have been using squid-cache for a very long time over the suse
releases, for smallish lan networks and mainly windows clients.
windows proxy settings offers to use proxy for http, https, ftp and
socks even. never cared about socks.

situation is: 42.3 upgraded to 15.0
some software vendor used on the lan, hands out some downloads via
ftp. i clicked the download from a firefox webbrowser, on a windows
now that leap 15 upgraded.

the ftp download of multiple hundreds of megabytes, briefly started
and managed to grab sometimes 1kbyte sometimes 18kbytes sometimes no
kbytes at all showing only a stall in firefox download window.

when i removed the proxy settings on windows, the firefox would
connect directly. the leap 15 is also the nat router. 42.3 was simply
with susefirewall2, leap 15 is with firewalld i guess. havent messed
with any of it.

so now i am unsure where the problem would be here, in squid cache, or
some nat or firewall parts, or nat helpers for ftp? passsive mode pasv
rings some bells from history inet times. but i had never problems
when being on 42.3 before on those clients and in that network.

also other stuff surfing via squid works just fine, http, https even with 15 ;)

there are way too many bugs these days. will need to take a look into
the squid access logs to find out a bit, but just dont have the time
to deal with these endless things caused by suse upgrades, and to be
honest, these are not rocket science changes or bugs or inventing top
notch sate of the art stuff and being unfinished work. this has always
been breakage on the simple side of things and unsound engineering or
complete lack of quality control. i guess this is life. normal and
standard proceedings everywhere on the planet. :(
