Re: Timeout detected. (control connection)

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

Can you download those files anyhow? Using WinSCP GUI? Using any other FTP client? If you can, please post a log file for that too.

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.

Timeout detected. (control connection)

I've now finished everything I need... just now need to automate the pulling down of files/ folders.

I'm still testing using command prompt until the script is perfect, but on large files I'm receiving "timeout detected. (control connection)"... any suggestions?
My batch file is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\" /log="I:\SeedboxAuto\WinSCP.log" /ini=nul /script="I:\SeedboxAuto\WINSCPFULL.txt"

if %ERRORLEVEL% neq 0 goto error
echo Error!
exit /b 1

The WINSCPFULL script is:
# Connect

open ftp://MASKED -rawsettings ProxyPort=0

# Download TV Shows newer than 2 minutes then delete
cd "/media/TV"
get -delete -filemask=<2N * "I:\TV-I\"

# Download Films newer than 2 Minutes then delete
cd /media/Films
get -delete -filemask=<2N * "E:\Films-E\"

# Disconnect
# Exit WinSCP
