i have latest version of winscp i downloaded it like yesturday and i havent been able to log on but i use openssh for windows. Whenever i try to log onto my server i either get session timed out or a connection refused message. I am trying to see if this is a result of my network settings or a bad shell installation can anyone help me.

Normally when somethng goes wrong i get a dialogue box that details what happens, but in this case i dont, i just recieve a "network failure: connection refused". is there another way to see the details?

Turn on logging to file. Also does (not did!) older versions of WinSCP work? If it does, what version it is?

i use version 3.7.6 now, and no, no other versions work either. I went to enable log file but my version does not have that tab, i located it on the help screen and seen the screen shots of it, but i do not have that. Do you have any other suggestions?

Do you have "Advanced option" checked?
Also check your firewall. It may block WinSCP.

It is your server that closes connection. So it must know the reason Smile Check its log files. Possible reason is that it cannot find SFTP server (the executable).

The log tab is not visible on preferences dialog when it is opened from the login dialog, because it is already there (on login dialog).
However I wanted you to check the server's log, not log of WinSCP.
