Topic "Changing Wait Time for Disconnects"

Author Message

Currently my system is set by default to waiting 15 seconds for communication from the other end and then going to the "no communication for 15 seconds ... Abort?" message. I can manually abort and restart it and it runs just fine until the next communications lapse when the cycle repeats. Since I can't be monitoring this daily job all of the time it's a problem.

Is there any way to change the 'wait' time from 15 seconds to something longer, maybe 60 seconds?

Also - although winscp.exe is set to auto-restart after 5 seconds and it does that once I answer the 'Abort?' message referenced above, can this be automated so that instead of getting the 'Abort?' message it simply cycles and reconnects?

TIA.

Found the problem I was having with the 15 second timeout value and have that fixed. I also turned on the 'keepalive' function (apparently 'off' by default) and this morning I have six (6) parallel transfers running very smoothly with only one (1) timeout disconnect 'Abort?' message.

If I can figure out how to auto-answer that 'Abort?' message and have it automatically restart I will be able to put this job to bed and move on to the many others awaiting my attention.

Enable Automatically reconnect session, if it stalls. Note that this option is available only in the 5.0.x beta. And it is enabled by default, so you are likely using the stable release without the feature.
