FATAL ERROR: Network error: Software caused connection abort

#1 Post by flow » 2021-02-27 10:01

Error: FATAL ERROR: Network error: Software caused connection abort
FileZilla frequently shows me this error when I 'unhibernate' my PC in the morning. I have four FileZilla tabs that are always connected and sometimes see four lines of this error, sometimes just one.

When I hibernated my PC earlier just for testing purposes I did not get the error, when I did it again a bit later I got it four times. When I did it again two minutes later, I got the error once, followed by:
Status: Disconnected from server
What's going on? :)

You hibernate only your PC. You don't freeze the FTP servers you are connected to, and they will drop you out, eventually.
Additionally, hibernation usually forces network links to go down, causing disconnections.

Solution? Simply reconnect.

Hmm... I haven't thought about it like that... makes sense. :) It's just weird that it's sometimes 0 errors, sometimes 1, and sometimes 4. :)

Can vary with time hibernated, kind of servers connected to.

Just always remember that not everything stops when you freeze/hibernate your machine. Would be very useful, sometimes. :)
