Turning off reverse DNS lookup

I use WinSCP here at work, and I love it. The one thing that get annoying though is the fact that it does a reverse DNS lookup everytime I try to connect to a host. I understand that this may be nice in some cases, but is there any way to turn this off? The MIS department at my work refuses to implement reverse DNS lookups, so all my connections sit and wait for it to timeout before letting me connect. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Turning off reverse DNS lookup

What protocol are you using? What version of WinSCP? Do you connect via proxy or directly?

I am using version 4.0.0 (Build 342). When I go to Command -> Server/Protocol Information, I get the information listed below. The connection is a direct one, no proxy.


Session protocol = SSH-2
SSH implementation = OpenSSH_4.2
Encryption algorithm = aes
Compression = No
File transfer protocol = SFTP-3
------------------------------------------------------------
Can change permissions = Yes
Can change owner/group = No
Can create symlink/hardlink = Yes/No
Can lookup user groups = No
Can duplicate remote files = No
Can check available space = No
Can calculate file checksum = No
Native text (ASCII) mode transfers = No
------------------------------------------------------------
Additional information
The server does not support any SFTP extension.

I'm assuming that means there isn't such a feature right now, but you are going to add it as a feature request? Thank you if that is the case.

No, there's no such a feature yet.
