filezilla network error: software caused connection abort when changing directories

Hi- Whenever I let Filezilla sit open for a while, it seems to disconnect, and when I try to go to another directory, it takes up to a minute. Very frustrating. This has been happening since I upgraded to 3.16.1.

it looks like this:

The files are on rackspace, and it did not happen on earlier versions. Anything I can find on Rackspace forum for other people having this issue,  says that it is the server's fault. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I forgot to mention that I use SFTP to connect to this server, but I have the same problem on all servers I connect to since upgrading filezilla.

I have that same 'problem' with all versions of Filezilla back to 3.8.  I believe it is supposed to work that way.  CoreFTP works the same way on many sites.

I just upgraded the speed of my ADSL package, maybe it will be faster now. It was taking 30 seconds or more to load, which seems like a lifetime when you're in a hurry.

Nope, just as slow. I'm going to leave this open in the hope that someone has a solution or work-around. Thanks.

I'm not happy with the answer, but obviously it's correct. :)

Ever since you asked this question, I've noticed that Filezilla disconnects and reconnects frequently.  At least it has nothing to do with your connection, just something about how Filezilla operates.

Thanks, Dave. I open up more than one window quite often, to different folders. Speeds things up.
