WinSCP have option "Automatically reconnect session, if it breaks during transfer".
Can you add same option on "Lost connection"?

Reconnect after N seconds
Guest




Oh, that I have missed for a long time.
I thought that "Automatically reconnect session, if it breaks during transfer" was the thing,
But I run into problem that winscp is expecting logon credentials in my case after a "lost connection" (Router restart or something (my isp isn't that stable)

So please, we need this!

Thanks in beforehand

WinSCP should restart the connection when it breaks during a transfer for whatever reason. So it does not for you, right? Can you post a log file showing that? Of course, supposing you are using the latest version...

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. For posting extensive logs you may use pastebin or similar application. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
