I think that depends on the server you connect to. There is a limit of time the server you are connected will let you stay connected if there is no activity. So every couple of minutes you should just browse folders. Of course, if you are downloading it won't disconnect you untill you finish your download and no more activity is detected. But only has to do with the server, and not the client,
