Topic review


Hey Martin,

oooh i have the solution right now ;-)

So i used the WinSCP Version 5.17.7 (Build 10640) - the Portable Version that i downloaded from at the time.
Now i downloaded 5.17.9 from and kept the WinSCP.ini. With this Version there is no problem any more.

Thank you

Re: Keep remote directiory up to date

Thanks for your report. Though, I cannot reproduce the problem. What version of WinSCP are you using?

Keep remote directiory up to date

There's a little Bug in "Keep remote directiory up to date"-Function.

I saved all my connections with Name like " [Customers Name, eg.]"
So when i connected, i often use the option "Keep remote directiory up to date" and click the 'Start'-Button. That's work fine. But if i click 'Start in New Window' instead, i'll get the Error:
Host "Customers Name, eg.]" not available.

It seems, you are using the connecion name after its first space as hostname.
