Changing the amount of time EFT Server waits between reconnect attempts


THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • EFT Server Enterprise version 6.3 and later
  • EFT v4.x to v7.4.x stores advanced properties in the registry.
  • EFT v8.x stores Advanced Properties in a JSON file.
    • When you upgrade from EFT v7.4.x to EFT v8, the non-default settings that you have defined in the registry will be added to the Advanced Properties file during upgrade. (Default settings are part of the EFT configuration files.)
      Please refer to the EFT help for a spreadsheet of advanced properties for your version of EFT.

DISCUSSION

You can control the amount of time EFT Server waits between reconnect attempts, once a "lost" folder monitor rule has been detected. The default is 1 second. You can change the default in the following registry setting:

On 32-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\Config\]

On 64-bit systems:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GlobalSCAPE Inc.\EFT Server 4.0\Config\]

"FolderMonitorWaitBeforeReconnect"= number of seconds
