Re: winscp

Please attach a complete session log file.


Hi, first time here. great software guys.

For a couple of years I have been using winscp to dev on web servers via the ssh protocol. editing .css and .php files which are opened using notepad++. Windows 10 x64 etc. I use pageant for my keyfiles.

I now get issues where the edited file cant be uploaded after I make changes and save. its like the first one works but after a period of time I get the following error below. I have to reconnect not just reopen the file and copy over the entire file contents if I want to keep my updated data.

At first i thought it my internet connection, but then I tried from city stable fibre for a few days and it was the same. I also tried different servers, same. I tried updating and it didnt solve the issue. I cant be sure its the software so I am going to try a version from like 12 months ago to see, would that be feasible ? any ideas how I can find or debug the cause.
