#9867 closed enhancement (fixed)

Restore ""Open new connection" for transfers

Reported by: ryann Owned by: dkocher
Priority: normal Milestone: 5.4
Component: core Version: 5.3.5
Severity: normal Keywords:

Before, Transfers preferences proposed only two options:

  1. "Open new connection"
  2. "Use browser connection"

Then "Open multiple connections" appeared as a third choice, and "Open new connection" has now been removed (in last version Version 5.3.9 (23624) for instance).

Nevertheless, it would be interesting to keep the 3 possible choices, and therefore restore option "Open new connection". Indeed, some light file transfer servers (in a set-top box for instance) are sometimes limited to 2 connections. In such a case, "Open a new connection" is a perfect compromise:

  • Cyberduck can perform the whole download/upload file list in sequence inside the Transfers window

whereas "Open multiple connections" would fail.

  • Meantime, the user can still browse the contents with the opened browser connection

whereas "Use browser connection" would prevent from doing that.

Hoping this enhancement will be possible in future releases.
