As I upgraded to Win 8.1 and started using HTML-Kit at the same time, I thought HTML-Kit has a problem with FTP.
Even though I setup the ftp idle timeout of the server to 2 hours(!) I'm getting a timeout in HTML-Kit after a few minutes.
googeling for "window 8.1 ftp problem" frings up a huge amount of angry users of several different programs which use ftp and having problems under windows 8.1.
I tried HTML-Kit on two different Windows 7 machines where the problem does not come up!
In fact, the problem seems to rely on an updated wininet(.dll) which comes with Internet Explorer 11.
Windows 8(.0) and Windows 7 users can uninstall IE11 and downgrade to IE10, but Win 8.1 users don't have this possibility as Win 8.1 comes with IE11 and there is no way to downgrade.
In the YT video above, the developers of their software implemented an option to switch the ftp engine to winsock, which seems to resolve the issue.
As Win 8.1 is getting more and more used, do you think you can find any solution for this problem?
At least, HTML-Kit does not become unusable (like other programs), but it's still very annoying that I have to wait a fair amount of time before the ftp connection is reestablished after working a few minutes on a file without saving every minute.
Thanks in advance.
