Topic "Getting transfer error"

Author Message


I have an automated process and sometimes (not all of the time) I am getting an error:

2016-10-19 08:41:34.812 Error message from server: Bad message")
< 2016-10-19 08:41:34.843 Script: Cannot close remote file 'HF1018.asap'.
< 2016-10-19 08:41:34.858 Script: Bad message (badly formatted packet or protocol incompatibility).
< 2016-10-19 08:41:34.858 Error code: 5

Wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to avoid this.

Using WINSCP Version 5.9.2 on windows 7 using SFTP transfer protocol.
