When calling the connect method on org.apache.commons.net.bsd.RLoginClient,
timeout can take 10 minutes +.
I have found that this is down to the RCommandClient connect method.
The exception to catch should be a BindException. The logic here is that so
long as we have got a valid local port and address (no BindException) then we
shouldn't bother trying all of the other local ports. If this is adopted, then
a connect exception is thrown from the connect method indicating that the remote
server is not present or responding.
Please see snippet from the corrected connect method below.
for (localPort = MAX_CLIENT_PORT; localPort >= MIN_CLIENT_PORT; --localPort)
// catch (SocketException e)
catch (BindException e)
