we've been trying to run a WinSCP batch script that connects to an FTP server. We transmit via a slow satellite connection (<2400 bit/s) so the biggest problem is getting the connection to the FTP server up, the actual file transfer while connected is ok. In most cases the connection attempt fails after around 15–20 seconds despite setting the connection timeout to 60 seconds. (Still connected to the internet) What might be the reason for this? Is this a problem of our client or the remote server?
Thank you very much.
