     Connection Connect timeout
Defines when any active connection should timeout in seconds.

     Connect retry delay
Defines retry connect delay in-between failed attempts.

     Connect retry count
Defines how many times retry connection is attempted overall before quitting.

    Bind Socket to IP
If where FlashFXP is running on has more than one IP address (for instance, if more than one network adapter is installed), you can use this to specify which IP FlashFXP should use to access the FTP server.

FlashFXP will listen on all ports by binding to

FlashFXP will enumerate all local IP addresses and display them, allowing you to bind to a specific IP.

    Network friendly QoS
This allows you to configure FlashFXP to be Quality of Service (QoS) aware. Used when, quality of service (QOS) throughout a network needs to be managed. When enabled FlashFXP will set the type of service (TOS) flag for TCP/IP. Otherwise, the OS default is used.

          Disabled / Enabled

          Enable or disable Network friendly QoS

Folder Cache

     Enable Cache
When checked, the server file listing is stored locally in a cache file. This improves speed and navigation when browsing the server.

     Refresh on file transfer
When checked, a folder will be refreshed prior to queuing the content of a cached folder.

     Expire after
When checked, The cache will expire after a preset amount of time.

This will define expiration of cache in minutes, from 1~ 99999999999. Default is 30

TCP/IP Buffer Size

This setting allows the user to fine tune the TCP/IP socket buffer size to provide optimal transfer speed. Different network configurations and conditions may require these values to be changed. In most cases using default will provide near ideal results.

Adjusting the TCP/IP Send and Receive buffer increases the TCP Window size. (Wikipedia: TCP Window scale)

Default uses a global default buffer size defined by the operating system.

The Auto mode will gradually increase or decrease the buffer size to try and obtain the optimal speed. This method is intended for network connections are always changing. From our experience this feature is unnecessary for Microsoft Windows Vista and newer.

default / auto / 4KB ~ 1024KB

default / auto / 4KB ~ 1024KB

      Character Encoding

          Auto / ANSI / UTF-8 (iso-8859-1/Latin-1)

          Detects ANSI or UTF-8 9iso-8859-1/Latin-1) or tries to auto-detect which character set is supported by server.
