I've been using winscp on my windows vista machine for a couple years now and have had no problem, but today I tried opening a large .csv file on a remote server and it timed out while opening it. So i tried logging back in again - and everytime I try it can't never successfully connect. Always says it can't access the remote directory, even though others can verify it is.

To access the server i am on a vpn connection - and others on the same vpn have verified it works.

I'm attaching a log file of the issue. I removed the server/username for security purposes.

Further more, I downloaded filezilla and fireftp clients. I get the same issue here as well - seems like an issue with my machine but it originated while using WinSCP.

Any help much appreciated! Could their be some local files that I need to clear out?

I saw this problem before. OpenSSH chokes on some strange (maybe too large) files on the directory. Are you able to login if you specify different initial remote directory?
