Description

The TimeoutIdle directive configures the maximum number of seconds that proftpd will allow clients to stay connected without receiving any data on either the control or data connection. If data is received on either connection, the idle timer is reset. Setting TimeoutIdle to 0 disables the idle timer completely (clients can stay connected for ever, without sending data). This is generally a bad idea as a "hung" tcp connection which is never properly disconnected (the remote network may have become disconnected from the Internet, etc) will cause a child server to never exit (at least not for a considerable period of time) until manually killed See Also: TimeoutLogin, TimeoutNoTransfer
