we use SFTP (C#) and one of the servers we send large files too would disconnect (timeout) in the middle of sending large files (say 15 GB)
we get a "SocketError: WSAECONNRESET An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host"
they said they have a 20 secs timeout for idle connections not sure why it becomes idle when it is already started to majority of the file they recommend setting/sending keep-alives but I do not see this option for SFTP
are they correct in asking for this? what are my options to be able to send these large files regularly

This is not a "keepalive" problem. There are two possible "keep alives" --
