Re: Is /timeout bogus?

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.

Is /timeout bogus?

No matter what I set the /timeout= to in my script it takes the same amount of time to return "Network error: Connection timed out.".

For example if I connect to an address that does not exist on my network (, no matter what the timeout flag is set to it always takes 15+ seconds.

Is this a bug?
