Avoiding ftp timeout (900secs)

If I leave a ftp session unattended(no download, upload, nothing) it times out in 900 secs and closes the connection.
I want to keep the ftp connection open for a long time (say throughout the day).

How can I do that?

Thanks

The timeout is controlled by the server. If you have control over the server there's usually an option that can be added to the inetd config file to increase the timeout for the ftp invocation. I'm not aware of any FTP clients that have some sort of "keep-alive" ability, so I don't think you can affect the timeout from the client side.
