But I do not see that TLU is trying to reach the server for 30  
seconds. The message appears very shortly after a change of the server  
in the preferences.

Strange. I do not encounter any problem when I contact the server with  
an ftp-program (fetch). And it takes 2 or 3 seconds to display the  
list of files.
