This indicates that the server disconnected at some point in time after the last successful Chilkat method call, but prior to this method call. In other words, the Chilkat component tried to send the FTP command on the socket, but found the socket to be already disconnected by the server. You’ll need to examine the server-side logs to determine the server’s reason for disconnecting. One common reason is when the connection is inactive for too long. You might avoid this condition by periodically calling Noop when your application might otherwise be idle.
