I have a scheduled script (via Windows Scheduler) which starts WinSCP to get some files from a device.
Script works fine for several days and then suddenly stops. Have had this issue for some weeks now and don't know how to resolve this issue.
I think here is the problem:
In attached log files you'll find 3 logs:
* connection_failed.log: Here you'll find a log from my script which failes within the same ms the script is started. It looks like the script doesn't even try to connect to the device
* connection_timeout: Here you'll find a log from my script which failes because there actually isn't a connection to a device (device is offline, so this log is fine). But you'll see that WinSCP tries for +/- 21 seconds to connect to the device before it gives the failed status.
* connection_good.log: Here you'll find a log from my script to a device which works correctly.
As i've told, the script works fine for several days and i'm receiving connection_timeout.log and connection_good.log. After x days the script stops working and all i get is the connection_failed.log (connection failed within the same ms).
When i restart my server, alle works fine again, but have the same problem several days later.
Can you tell me why WinSCP decides to give a 'Connection failed' status within the same ms as the script is started? It doesn't even try to connect to the device.
Thanks in advance for your reply and research!
