Do you mean that the popup doesn't appear or what ?

Yes the popup doesnt appear at times.  I have to manually enter
command line to gain ftp or shell link access.

Maybe your left panes is configured to use the "Long file list"
view. If you want to see the contents on both panels simultaniously
you can do the following:

1) Press F9 to go to the menu

2) Expand the "Left" menu and select "Listing mode"

3) Select the "Full file list" mode

yes Full File List Mode is set already. The problem is that since I
have connected to remote server, from right panel, how do I bring it
back up or appear when I see right window is displaying again the
local file system.  Do I need to type in the command line again to
reconncet to remote server? As you mention below timeout is 900 sec.
How can I toggle this to make the remote panel appear?

The connection is closed automatically when it expires - the
default timeout is 900 sec and can be configured by changing the
the value of "fish_directory_timeout" option in your ~/.mc/ini

How do you log in into that linux box ? Remote login or local
login ? What is the value of the environment variable "TERM" ?

I use remote putty login to connect to my distance server. With same
putty, I connect to another server and broders display correctly.  Can
seem to find TERM in putty.
