Windows 7: FTP connections; making and breaking

FTP connections; making and breaking

I have been using an ftp client that automatically uploads files from my home network to my website. It can do the uploads on a preset schedule or it can upload whenever there is a change in the folder. I must have done something to cause the uploading frequency to increase because the ftp would fail because of login denial. I was informed by my web host that there is a limit of 8 simultaneous connections from the same url. Since the ftp client appears to log in for each upload, it must have been exceeding the max connections limit because of frequent logins. During the troubleshooting, I tried making an ftp connection from windows explorer. This would also fail sometimes, and I assume for the same reason.

One question is: What controls the duration of an ftp connection or how do you log out?

Another question: If I create an ftp folder in explorer and log in, will it just remain logged in, or does it expire on its own?

If the explorer connection is durable then I can just leave it on and write the files I want uploaded directly to the ftp connection. What's the best way? The ftp client I'm using is Fling, and I've had very little trouble with it for years, but I'd like to better understand how to manage the ftp connection.
