I am in a test phase to ensure transfers are reliable. I was working on reducing speed limits on the Server side to prevent transfers from utilizing too much bandwidth. I hit a limit where I began to encounter server connection timeouts with larger file size transfers.
Using a PUT –delete “C:\CSV_Logs\*.txt” “/” command in the script the server would timeout after (15) seconds when the transfer of larger files was taking place. Would it be a true statement that a full single file transfer must take place within the configured timeout period? If I set the –timeout=30 parameter on the OPEN command or increase the server transfer speed limit the timeout error goes away.
Does the server not consider the transferring of data as a reset for the connection timeout timer? Is there something I’m missing to keep the connection alive during a long and/or slow file transfer or is my solution above the best one available at this time with my selected FTPS protocol?
Thanks for any assistance anyone can provide.
