Got faster connection times by using my own temp directory

I was finding that WinSCP would take a couple of minutes to connect to a server that other SCP clients (e.g. jEdit) would connect to in seconds.

I think this may have to do with using the Windows temp directory. When I changed it to c:\mywinscptemp connecting suddenly became instantaneous.

Perhaps it is searching the whole Windows temp directory? Mine contains hundreds/thousands of files.

Anyway you may be able to give WinSCP users faster connection times by using your own temp directory, or a subdirectory of the Windows temp directory.
