    At uni i have some space to store files, is there a way to mount a ftp server as a local folder? If so, how?

    Either through command line or in the fstab.

    If your refereing to a ftp session that won't timeout at some point, I've never heard of anything. Although as a work around you could just create a script that would log you in via a gui icon or cmd line. If you notice you lost your connection while trying to save a document, then just run the script again.

    Also depending on if the ftp server is yours or not and what your using for software you maybe able to change the timeout settings. For security reasons its best you keep ftp session timeouts as short as possible but if its a private network (i.e. 192.168.x.x) then the only real security issue is internal. If at home there would be no real issue here at all.
