Question on mc

Dear listmembers,
two questions on my mc (mc-4.6.1-pre3 / SuSE linux 9.3):
1.) if I do a ftp-connect to an external server and for some reason there is 
no traffic for some time, my dial on demand internet connection is 
interrupted (intentionally).
In such a case mc freezes and cannot be revived. Is there any workaround / 
timeout that can be activated in case the remote server does not respond?

2.) same condition but at the beginning of a connection attempt: F9 brings me 
to the top menu, I can choose the "right" (or "left" ...) column and move by 
hand down to the "ftp-connection" field. If I choose it I haven't found a way 
without using the mouse to get access to the list of the server a connection 
had had existed to, before. Is there any key / key combination that serves 
for this purpose or is this access really restricted to mouse operations?

Many thanks for your inputs,
take care

Dieter Jurzitza

if you really want to see the pictures above - use some font
