Hi,

If WinSCP is used for connect to a remote which is not response or spercified a wrong port, then users instantly close to connection.

Now, WinSCP will show "Cancelling..." but seem forever to done this task.

Please try host diaocsva.com with port 2283 for SFTP connection.

I have to use Task Manager to Close it!

Please fix this issue.

This happened in 5.1.4

No amount of debugging versions is going to stop this. It is a fundamental "How it is written" issue in WinSCP. It has always done this, on all computers across versions, across different networks, for a long time (as in always). It's only the length of time it takes that differs. Expected behaviour: Click the cancel button, it exits as fast as your CPU can send the command. Actual behaviour: You click cancel and it can take anything from 15 seconds to a few minutes to simply trash a connection.
