Re: Synchronization: Reconnect and continue during file compare
Thanks for your reply.
Such are the wonders of the Internet. You search for hours to find a solution or if someone has had the same problem, and you still do not find anything!
After reading the tracking tickets I can see this is a 4 year old subject that has not been addressed yet.
My situation in more detail is this:
I am using a script to synchronize a website over FTPS (exsplicit TLS). Because of some unknown reason the servere disconnects in less than 5 minutes (usually between 2 and 3). If the directory listing takes more time than this, the script stoppes. If it reaches the file transfer phase, it synchronizes but with repeated disconnects and reconnects. As I have many files, the synchronization never reaches the file transfer phase, except for the first time, when there was nothing on the other end.
I then tried using plain FTP (no encryption) and then the server did not disconnect and everything ran as exspected. But this is not an acceptable solution. Need encryption.
I have tried the FTPS transfer agains servers in both USA and Germany and both disconnect.
I have also tried FTPS with Filezilla and it also disconnects regularly. I had to split my large manual transfer into smaller batches.
It might be an error / misconfiguration in my firewall, but this will be hard to track.
Anyhow it would be great to have the reconnect option during directory compare.
Thanks for a great program,
