When using Tectia and I open a connection to a remote server using sshg3/sfptg3/scpg3 and then close the connection, and quite soon (in less than 5 seconds) open a new connection to the same server as the same user as in the previous connection I get connected without authentication? Why is that?
If I wait some time before reconnecting this does not happen and I get prompted for authentication.

When the connection has not been used for some time (by default, 5 seconds), the connection is disconnected. Until that time, new commands, file transfers and tunnels will be able to use the already authenticated connection.
