Question regarding connections [CLOSED]

Post by bchuter » Wed Sep 20, 2017 8:55 pm

Hi Mike

I have a question regarding connections.

When setting up a connection "SFTP" and then connecting to a second SFTP.
I notice it stayed connected to the first session.
I dont see a way in the connection manager to disconnect a session once it has been established ?
Or does it actually disconnect as soon as you browse away from it on the left or right panel ?
I work in an environment where i need to make many SFTP connections (to collect logs) and used NC for the first time only 2 days ago.
So please excuse me if this is a silly question.
I was expecting to see a disconnect button in "connection manager" for all connected sessions, so that i could
gracefully disconnect my sessions rather than having them time out etc. (unless this already does happen....hence me asking :D )

Hi,
All connections are cleared when there're no panels and/or file operations involving that VFS.
It was discussed before on this forum, the basic idea is that if you can't see some VFS - it means that there're no network connections and vice versa.
Reality is a bit more complicated, of course.

I was really just checking. I assumed it might, but wanted to be sure.
Thanks for clearing it up for me
