Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

Hi;

I tried to change the TimeOut on a SFTP connection to a different value, but its appear that WinSCP doesn't accept new value, and default to 15 sec. The new value is accept for FTP connection. I even tried to use winscp.com /timeout=150 parameter, but its still doesn't work and default to 15 sec instead of 150 seconds.

I'm using Winscp 4.2.3 version.

Thanks
John[/u]

Re: Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

Do you want to configure timeout for connection attempt?

Re:Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

I want to configured the "Server Response Timeout" for one of my stored session. If I open the connection through UI, the new value is accepted, however, if I open the connection through command-line winscp.com /script=scriptfile, the new value is not accepted and default to 15 sec.

The scriptfile has stored session information and its should accept new value for the server response timeout.
option batch on
option confirm off
open store@sssionname
lcd c:\testing
cd /prod/in
put -delete *.*
close
exit

Thank for your help.
john.

Re:Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

So do you have stored session "store@sssionname" that has the timeout set?

Re: Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

Yes, I put 150 secs in the "Server response timeout" on "store@sssionname". As I mentioned before, using UI, the 150 sec is accepted, but using
winscp.com /script=scriptfile.txt
, its default to 15 secs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

I suppose (hope) that the account "ACCOUNT NAME REMOVED" was the same, wasn't it?
If it was, please check my email with link to a debug version that I have just sent.

Re: Trouble SFTP connection TimeOut Setting

Thanks; I finally know what the problem was; its was within my script. During the trouble shooting with the Debug version, I realized that instead of open the stored session, I had the winscp.com open entirely new connection,
open username:password@host:port
, in which the default timeout is set at 15 sec.

Thanks for your help.
John.

I have tried to set a timeout value in version 5.1.7 usign a script file.
I tried -timeout=120 as a parm to the Open command in the script
I tried /timeout=120 as a parm to the winscp call in the DOS window

Sorry, the timeout in the log is always 15:
Ping type: -, Ping interval: 30 sec; Timeout: 15 sec

This is correct.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP, ideally using WnSCP 5.2.3 beta).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. 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 may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.

session 'Timeout Timespan setting

I am having this issue when I have a session invoked from Excel using VBA. I have tried several different syntax approaches but cannot find one that works. How can I set the session timespan timeout option to 100 using VBA?
