Since sometime not long after this change, I've been unable to upload
my results to fx.meta-comm.com. The regression.py script is just
hanging in the step of uploading results to the FTP server.
I can reproduce this hang with a simple script (attached). The
process just hangs at the last step. A fix for the issue is to call
Python's socket.setdefaultimeout and give it some some reasonable
value, say 30 seconds. This way a failed socket operation will
eventually throw an exception instead of just hanging forever. This
won't address my issue of not being able to upload results, but at
least I won't have <n> instances of regression.py hanging around and I
can upload my results by hand (lftp seems to be robust enough to retry
these operations several times until the succeed).
At any rate, can someone at meta-comm take a look at the firewall
configuration and see if there may be something *else* misconfigured
on their end? You can contact me and I can work with you to test the
