Re: Connection aborted unexpected

Please attach a full session log file both from your machine and your colleague's (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. 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 can mark the attachment as private.

Connection aborted unexpected

I use WinSCP already a long time, to connect to Linux servers.
Since last week I can't anymore... each time on all servers I try, I get a message like:
Fout tijdens het overslaan van het opstartbericht. Uw shell is mogelijk niet compatibel met de toepassing (BASH wordt aangeraden).

In English:
Error while skipping the startup message. Your shell may not be compatible with the application (BASH is recommended).

My Colleague uses the same version on the same servers and he doesn't have any problem.

What can I do?
