FTP Lost Connection (Timeout)

Hi,

I was eagerly waiting for the FTP functionality in WinSCP to finally throw away all other FTP clients I have!

Unfortunately, I'm receiving "Lost connection" error messages every few minutes or so if the session is inactive, and prompting me to reconnect. Messages are such as:

"Disconnected from server
Terminating connection."

and

"Disconnected from server
Timeout (900 seconds): closing control connection."

This is an annoying (default?) behavior that could be silently addressed in the handshake as other FTP clients do, without dabbling with individual configuration (passive mode, timeout, keepalive, etc.).

I'm using WinSCP 4.0.0 build (342) on Windows XP connecting to Unix Solaris 8/9, Linux Fedora and Windows 2k servers.


Blessings,

Bar.

Since the next release, keepalives will be enabled by default for FTP sessions.
