Topic review


Thank you!

I appreciate your assistance with this, martin! Considering keywords on the linked page, I have no idea why my searches never brought this to light. Thank you for ending my headache.

What I have checked thus far.

I have looked through WinSCP documentation, WinSCP forum, and web searches. I have been unable to find an answer to my inquiry. I will continue to research and will update this post if I find an answer before an answer is provided.

Configure WinSCP for SFTP only, do not knock FTP port.

I see that WinSCP checks if FTP is available when SFTP fails. Can WinSCP be configured to never try FTP, do not look/check/try/knock, only use SFTP. If SFTP fails, game over. Do not try anything else for any reason.
Failed to connect to aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd: Network error: Connection timed out

Knocking FTP port.
FTP port opened, will suggest using FTP protocol.
Script: Network error: Connection to "" timed out.
The server rejected SFTP connection, but it listens for FTP connections.
Did you want to use FTP protocol instead of SFTP? Prefer using encryption.
