Topic review


Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file 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.

I set the timeout to 60 seconds and still getting the same message.

I am using Winscp command line to zip a file and I got a “host is not communicating for more than 15 seconds” error. Here is the command that I type in “call tar -czf /csvs/daily/test.tar.gz /csv/daily/test.txt” The server is a Linux server. What I am trying to do is zip up a whole bunch of files and download it. Please help
