    Question "Connect to server" won't... well, connect to server!

    I'm running Oneiric with Gnome-fallback and when I go to Places -> Connect to Server and enter in my ftp server details, I can never get it to connect. It just sits there for a long time saying "connecting" and then it usually returns with, "invalid reply" or "connection timed out".

    When I enter the same details into FileZilla, it connects, no problem! I tried searching for bugs and other reports of this issue, but it looks as if I'm the only one running into this (I'm sure the gnome-fallback narrows the field a bit!).

    Does anybody know what the problem might be? Or if/where that "Connect to Server" process is logged? Or what I can do to diagnose the issue?

    Thank you!

    Nobody knows? Can somebody at least confirm whether it works for them?

    If you're not already running Gnome-Fallback, it's a really quick install. After installing, logout and log back into "Gnome Classic". When you're done, you can log back in to Unity and uninstall Gnome-Fallback.
