Topic "winscp fail before file download completion"

Author Message



I use Filezilla on my server and use simple FTP protocol.
I have notice the following problem using winSCP (version from 4.39 and older and now 5.13):
Just before a file transfer completion the connection is lost and I get the pop up window to reconnect and insert my password. After the password inserted the operation is complete successfully but the same process happen for the rest of files: before the file transfer completion I get a password window and need to re-insert my password.
This happen not for all files, but in most cases.
Whats the problem?

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

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.
