Topic "WinSCP takes ages to cancel a connection"

Author Message



If WinSCP is used for connect to a remote which is not response or spercified a wrong port, then users instantly close to connection.

Now, WinSCP will show "Cancelling..." but seem forever to done this task.

Please try host with port 2283 for SFTP connection.

I have to use Task Manager to Close it!

Please fix this issue.

This happened in 5.1.4
