Idle Timeout Checker

Post by tascrafts » Sat Jul 03, 2010 4:28 pm

Hello,

When working on a site, I usually leave SmartFTP open; just dragging files into it as I make changes to them locally. However, if I do not upload for several minutes, my FTP server kicks the connection because of the idle timeout (Even with noops, etc). This is all fine, however, when I go to upload another file, SmartFTP will not recognize that the connection has been dropped and sit there for 30 seconds or so before making a new connection.

So, in short, a feature to check if a connection has been dropped so it does not spend 30 seconds waiting before making a new one would be nice.

(No, I don't want to lower the timeout limit because that creates other problems)
(This is also true for the files monitored on the transfer queue.)
