Is there a way to make ncftp hold the connection open longer than the default? a ping every 10 sec or something? I feel like after I push a change up to the server before I can verify everything is working as expected and get back into ncftp the connection is closed by the remote host.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Do you really need to use ncftp?

If you can change application to curl or wget, those should be able to send some NOOP as keepalive
