Re: doesn't connect, but used to - strange problem

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

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. 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.

doesn't connect, but used to - strange problem


I hope, someone had similar problem before and resolved it.

I use one ftp host regullary. I used it this afternoon without problem, but then after some hours and computer crash I no longer can connect.

Got the standard message:
"Disconnected from server
Connection failed".

It shows right after "Reconect" click - in miliseconds (much faster than regulary). I asked the server administration, but they even don't have my log in tries in logs, nor on any accesslist logs. They see my afternoon succesful tries. It's also possible to connect via another computers or in-browser ftp-clients to this server. So it seems it's client-side problem, which can be connected with my computer crash and files errors.

win7 64-bit with newest winscp, the host is standard ftp

What I tried?
- Connected without antivirus,
- I set the firewall down,
- I even reinstalled winscp,
- I created other ftp users,
And nothing works. Only on this one specific host.

Any idea?
