Topic "Getting timeout error while connecting using ftp"

Author Message


Hi Everyone,

I am trying to connect my ftp (on MS Server 2008 R2 64) using latest version of WinSCP5.5.2 but facing intermittent issue. Sometime it get connected and sometime its not. I don't have any clue.. I have tried it with both C# library and with WINSCP UI but error persists. Surprisingly, I am able to connect the ftp using Filezila without any error. Below is the exception detail I am getting:

{WinSCP.SessionRemoteException: Connection failed. ---> WinSCP.SessionRemoteException: Timeout directed.

Thanks in advance

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

To generate log file, set Session.SessionLogPath. 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.
