lately (for the last couple of weeks) I have frequent issues of timeouts when uploading many files (a few hundred), and sometimes I am completely blocked by the FTP server.
Today it happened again, so I called the support. They told me that I had more than 10 connections open, which causes timeouts and if it's too much, I'm blocked temporarily (as long as the connections are open). The supporter said there should be a setting in the FTP software to limit connections, and of course there should be. I already knew about a setting for number of transfers, which has always been set to 3 in WinSCP. Is there another setting of "number of connections per transfer"? Or another way of limiting the number of connections?
Is there a way to close open connections? Shutting down WinSCP does not help. Maybe there is another program that connects (I have an editor running that can do FTP). Is there a simple program to monitor connections? (I have Fiddler installed, but that seems like overkill ...)
Ideally, I don't know if that's at all possible, WinSCP (or other program) would monitor the total number of connections and give a warning when above X.
