FileZilla Client Feature Request: Additional FTP Keep-alive features

#1 Post by DennisOlof » 2021-03-18 20:38

Is it possible to add these features to FileZilla as I had them in FlashFXP that I no longer use.

I attach two files so you can see what I am talking about.

There are no plans to extend keep-alive, the existing functionality is more than sufficient.

Ok, then I know.

Tried to find some basic information on how the keep-alive works in FileZilla but could not find it.

Keep alive will send "alive" commands every 30 seconds, for up to 50 minutes IIRC. Then, it will stop (to not keep you connected forever, should you have forgotten to disconnect).

Keep-alive will only fool basic connection timeouts, but not the more aggressive no-transfer timeouts. To actually reset a no-transfer timer, you need to initiate a transfer.

Even if you get disconnected, FileZilla automatically reconnects the next time you perform an operation.

boco, thanks. This is the information I was looking for. Why not include that in the program or something like that.

Then you would know when selecting that feature what it does and how it works.

Thanks :-)
