-WinSCP version: 5.7.7 (happens with 5.0.9, 5.5.6 as well)
-OS: WS2008R2 (happens with Windows7 as well)
-Protocol: FTP
-Happens both in GUI(commander) and script
-FTP Server: Global Scape EFT Server

I'm facing an issue with WinSCP when I upload 0 byte file to this particular FTP server in the internal network.

When I upload a 0 byte file, WinSCP would wait for 15 seconds and disconnect saying "Connection Timeout".
It would retry afterwards, and face "Permission Denied" error from the server.

Funny part is that the 0 byte file is actually uploaded and present in the destination folder.
Still will return error status (ERRORLEVEL=1) and causes the batch to fail, which is not desirable.

If I use other FTP clients like ftp.exe or Filezilla, or if the file length is more than 1 byte, the issue does not reproduce.

Attaching Level2 log for your reference.
Thanks for your support in advance.

The error messages around 2016-03-23 10:17:10.059 are localized version of WSAENOTCONN.
(A request to send or receive data was disallowed because the socket is not connected and (when sending on a datagram socket using sendto) no address was supplied.)

**Command line
> /script=testscript.txt /log=ftplog.txt /loglevel=2

**Script File
option batch on
option confirm off
open ftp://(id):(pw)@(server)

option transfer binary
cd "/dest_folder"
put $$test.csv.eof

log.txt (14.29 KB) Private file

Description: (none)
