Multiple prompts for MFA credentials with S3

When I have an S3 connection setup with MFA, I can connect and browse buckets fine, but when I try to download/upload a file, I am prompted for my MFA token every time. It seems like the session is not getting cached when I change from listing objects to get/put operations. Also, the session seems to time out fairly quickly, is it possible to increase the session duration?

If you don't have set Cyberduck to use the browser connection Cyberduck will open a new connection that is completely independent of the previous connection which is why you get the MFA token prompt every time you start a transfer. We currently don't have any possibility to change this behavior.

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to increase the session duration.
