I'm trying to connect to a SFTP client. I can connect and get a directory listing with FileZilla, but when trying to get a directory listing with WinSCP I get the error:

Timeout detected.
Could not retrieve directory listing
Opening ASCII mode data connection.
Error listing directory '/'.

I'm using version 4.2.2 and I've set Passive mode. Eventually I'll automate this (hence wanting to use WinSCP), however I'm using the GUI at the moment. Below are the logs from firstly FileZilla, followed by WinSCP. The difference appears to be that on FileZilla it's reporting '150 Opening BINARY mode data connection', however on WinSCP it's reporting '150 Opening ASCII mode data connection'. I've tried changing the transfer mode but this hasn't made a difference.

change ssh rsa to ssh-rsa if happens, and be aware of line break in key

dont know filezillas key-handling...
but, maybe key-handling error.

Can you also post a log file from your server? Both for Filezilla and WinSCP.

I tried it this morning without making any changes and it worked. Whereas it wouldn't connect at all yesterday with WinSCP (but every time with FileZilla) it's connecting virtually every time today (I repeated closing and reopening many times and it only failed once). Perhaps it's an intermittent fault. I've got it connecting and downloading files in script which I will set to run every day. If the problem occurs again I'll post log files from the server as requested.

Thanks for the help
