Hi

I have searched the forum for an answer to this error message (but couldn't find much at all):

A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
Connection failed.

I am connecting two Windows (Win10 connecting to Win7) laptops using a crossover cable... the pings are successful
I have added an exception to the Windows firewall for Winscp.exe on both laptops

The original error I got was this :

Timeout detected. (control connection)
Connection failed.

But one of the threads in the forum suggested increasing the timeout - which I changed to 60 seconds..

Any ideas???

Here is the log file... but it does not give much away

Thanks!

Are you able to connect with any other FTP client? Or even connect to the port anyhow? E.g. using PuTTY.
