Topic "WinSCP 2.3.0 freez when connect to apache/config"

Hi,

Every time when try to open Apache/Config folder, Win SCP 2.3.0 hangs (freez) and it is neccessary to restart the home computer.

Can open any other folder but not Apache/Config.
Going into Apache/Config with "Putty" is not a problem

Can you check if there's any bad symlink (broken, cyclic, ...) in the directory? Otherwise, please post a log file.

but if you would explain how I can get that log file then I would sent to you.

Hi,
First sorry for the late reply, took some holiday.

Here is the demanded log file, as everything freexe I did a computer re-start after 5 minutes. But during this 5 minutes I can not do nothing with the computer everything is blocked.

I have cut the log file as normally it is 5 pages long but always repeating the same line, as you will see:

. Changing directory to "..".
> cd ".." ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$?"
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Getting current directory name.
> pwd ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$?"
< /usr/local/apache
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Directory content loaded from cache.
. Changing directory to "conf".
> cd "conf" ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$?"
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Getting current directory name.
> pwd ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$?"
< /usr/local/apache/conf
< WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0
. Listing current directory.
> ls -la ; echo "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:$?"

Well, from the log file, you can see that there is a cyclic link etc -> etc.

You have there link which points to itself. WinSCP tries to resolve the link, which leads to infinite loop (you may see it in log file).
To solve it, delete the link.
Next version of WinSCP would detect cyclic links properly.
