We have a virus scanning proxy here. Upon download, it will fetch the file, scan it and then transfer it to FTP client.
While the file is fetched, the FTP client doesn't see anything. This triggers a timeout. FileZilla has a maximum timeout of 999 seconds. For files of several hundred megabytes or slow FTP servers, this timeout is too low.
A workaround is to set the timeout not via the settings GUI dialog, but change it directly in the filezilla.xml config file.
Please remove the artificial limit of 999 seconds when conguring the timeout via GUI allow to disable timeout completely. I understand that under normal circumstances having timeouts is good and 999 is unresonalby high. But we have special circumstances here. Thank you.
