sftp connection fails after DW open for a while
The ftp/sftp connection fails after DW has been open for awhile. Was working fine all day, then when I returned after taking a 30-minute break, got an error message: "An ftp error occurred - cannot make connection to host. Your login or password is incorrect. Please check your connection information." Nothing has changed -- worked fine all day. It won't work again until after I close DW and restart it. I'm using version 19
Looks like you have enabled FTP time-out interval and to fix this, can you please increase the FTP time-out interval on Dw idle by following the below steps.
1. Invoke Preferences dialog
a. Windows - Window Menu->Select Preferences menu item
b. Mac - Dreamweaver CC Menu->Select Preferences menu item
2. In Preferences dialog, select Site section on the left
3. Under Site section, increase the FTP connection: Disconnect after 30 minutes idle to your suitable idle or disable the check-box to time-out.
We’d appreciate hearing back from you that this solution worked, else will further investigate the issue.
Happens a lot. Have DW open. SFTP connection to whatever site I am working on is fine. I stop using DW for a while, like breaking for lunch or working on something else. I leave DW open so I can continue when I am ready. But, every time since v18 and now with v19, when I return to work it will not connect and I get the error message I cited above. Have to close DW and open it again, which is a real pain because it's so damned slow to load. Don't know what else I can tell you. Happens whether or not I disconnect before I leave DW.
Thanks for reporting the issue.
Can you please give some more details so we can troubleshoot the issue:
What protocol you are using (FTP/SFTP/FTPs)
What host you are establishing the connection with.
Is this error you are seeing 100% / on every attempt.
