Description (last modified by andrew_b) (diff)

I have a proper entry in ~/.netrc for USERNAME, PASSWORD and HOST.

If I try to access the URL ftp://HOST/PATH, mc correctly retrieves USERNAME and PASSWORD from .netrc and I can log into the FTP host.

If I try to access the URL ftp://USERNAME@HOST/PATH, mc displays a popup window, asking for the password. Shouldn't it retrieve the password from .netrc?

I had a look at https://midnight-commander.org/browser/src/vfs/ftpfs/ftpfs.c#L371

shouldn't it be

...`&& path_element->password == NULL`

instead of

...`&& path_element->password != NULL`


Or am I missing something?
