Re: BUG: When connecting using SOCK proxy

Thanks for your report. Though I cannot reproduce the crash.

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.

BUG: When connecting using SOCK proxy


When starting a Session using the command-line that uses a SOCKS proxy, when the SOCKS proxy closes the socket (because an error) the WinSCP crashes!

You can reproduce in this way: connect using PuTTY; enable SOCKS forward in the SSH session; open a session with WinSCP using the SOCKS proxy; kill the PuTTY session (without closing the PuTTY client)... this will end the TCP SOCKS connection, and WinSCP **crash**

Please, fix the bug!
