#2130 closed Feature request

number of simultaneous file transfers -> per-site setting

Normally I have the "number of simulataneous file
transfers" configured to something higher than "1" -
E.g. when I'm connected to an SFTP server. By setting
it up to something like "5" or "10", I usually get
shorter transfer times and very important: I can
continue browsing directories while still downloading.

But then it happens to me that I connect to a normal
FTP server which has a limited number of simultaneous
connections (often only "1"). Therefore with every file
which newly starts downloading from the queue,
filezilla attempts to open another connection and
causes the FTP server to produce an errormessage like
"530 You are already logged in maximum times." Then I
temporarily have to change the "number of simultaneous
file transfers" in the general settings manually, which
I often forget to change back to higher values for the
next SFTP transfer. Furthermore some FTP servers tend
to kick or ban users when they attempt to open more
than 1 simultaneous connection.

My suggestion would be:

Create in the site manager for each site a new field
which stores a "manually setted number of simultaneous
file transfers" for each site. if left empty, it will
be setted to the default number in the general settings

thanks again for this excellent software!

*Very* easy to use.
Thanks guys!

Last and least, if you let me, I'd also like to ask for this RFE.

Thanks again,

FileZilla 3 (beta) has such an option for each site in the site manager. Though, please also check this bug report:
[ 1687849 ] Limit number of simultaneous connections doesn't work
