I have the following issue: when trying to transfer through FTP the connection closes automatically as soon as the screen turns off. The music keeps on playing afterwards.

When I wake up the phone again i need to deactivate server running and activate otherwise it will not continue.

iOS is Iphone SE with 11.0.3 and I use WinSCP or Directory Opus on Windows for FTP transfer.

I am also having this problem. The connection stays on when the screen dims, but then it disconnects when the screen goes black. It is quite annoying because I have to keep tapping the iPhone to keep the FTP connection active. Much, much less convenient than simply playing a song! I also have an iPhone SE, but my version of iOS is 11.2.6. I use FileZilla for FTP transfer.

Can someone please help??
