Topic "Odd Error in 4.0.3"

I'm using WinSCP 4.0.3 to transfer files to/from several Linux machines. As I don't have root on these machines, when I login from WinSCP, I'm placed at my home directory. On one Linux machine, when I attempt to browse above /home, to several directories that I have rights to at /, I get the following error message "Host has not answered for more than 15 seconds. Still waiting... Warning: Aborting this operation will close connection!" This error ONLY occurs on one Linux system, and doesnt occur on the other several machines that I access, and only noticed this error last week. Since these are RedHat 8 machines, and no longer updated, (they're on an intranet, not exposed to the Internet). Any idea where to look for whats causing this?

Does the error disappear if you wait a while?

Hi!
Thanks for the reply...
We've never waited for more than 30 seconds.. Is this something that will go
away after a bit?? Since it only occurs on one Linux system, I wonder if its something that has gotten misconfigured on that systems sshd..

It may. Depends on cause of the timeout. I can hardly tell. Please try to wait at least a minute.
