Timeout for transfer when limiting bandwidth

Reported by: triggs Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: sftp Version: 4.7.3
Severity: normal Keywords: timeout manually reduced bandwidth
Cc: Architecture: Intel
Platform: Mac OS X 10.11


I am using the SFTP connection. When I leave the bandwidth set to Unlimited everything goes fine, but whenever I manually limit the bandwidth (I use the dropdown selector in the Transfer window) the download will eventually time out. It doesn't happen right away, and may take an hour or more. I can even set the bandwidth limit to something at or above what I am actually seeing and it will still time out.

I've tried searching for suggestions, but am having a hard time locating a similar issue being discussed. I don't always want to transfer as fast as my connection will allow. Are you aware of this issue, or have any suggestions on what to try?

I tested here with limiting an SFTP download to 50KB/s but cannot reproduce the issue. It appears to me this is possibly an issue with the server dropping the connection for unknown reasons.
