Topic "I cannot open many sites in WinSCP."

Author Message


I like WinSCP. However, there are many websites that I cannot open or access in WinSCP. No matter what settings I use, I can't access it. There are several sites that won't open in WinSCP. However, when I use Filezilla or Smart FTP, they open fine. Clearly, my credentials are correct, but there's probably a setting that I'm using that it default that prevents these from opening. Any idea what it is? I've been refraining from using WinSCP because I can't open sites with it, but I prefer this FTP client above any other.

Please post a full log file showing the problem.

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. 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.

I would be great if you also attach matching log files from Filezilla.
