That's true. It's just a connection. The online meme persists, however...
difficult to disprove a negative.

(There certainly are ways to fail to connect... the "Passive FTP" option is
probably the biggest hidden cause behind "can't connect" posts, but there
are definitely varied ways to get it to not work.)

It can... see docs on "Select Newer" or "Synchronize". (The "Select Newer"
lets you automatically select newer files on local or remote machines,
while the synching automatically transfers files back and forth.)
