In certain circumstances there may be an issue with the FileTransfer (FT) when using FT_VERSION= 2.

The connection takes approximately 40 seconds before the connection is made and then the transfer works as it should.

When using FT_VERSION=1 the connection works immediatly, but FT_VERSION=2 may be required in order to use it's functionalities.

Possible conclusion is that before the connection is established, the "get all group ID-table for ft user 'r3eadm'" should be checked.  That is where the time delay of 40 seconds has been seen.
It appears to be dependant on how many USERS and Authorization Groups are allocated and if LDAP is being used.
