Re: Batch Keepuptodate and autoreconnect

So did you try to enable keepaliaves? Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=C:\path\to\winscp.log command-line argument. 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.

Batch Keepuptodate and autoreconnect

Hi, I am using this script in a batch file to keep my remote folder up to date. Unfortunately, when no change is recognized, I am disconnected from the server.
I tried to figure out how to reconnect automatically but didn't found any info on the forum. I only found old answers saying it is not possible but the posts are from 2006 and 2015 so I am not sure if it still reflects the reality.
Disconnected from server
No-transfer-time exceeded. Closing control connection.

"C:\Users\XYZ\Downloads\WinSCP-5.19.6-Portable\" /ini=nul /command "option batch continue" "option confirm off" "open ftp://xyyhdfkjdf/" "keepuptodate -delete ""C:\Users\XYZ\Documents"" /XYZ/Documents" ^
if %WINSCP_RESULT% equ 0 (
echo Success
) else (
echo Error

Would be great if someone can help.

PS: I am using portable version of WinSCP.

Best Regards!
