Hi, sorry for my English, hope you'll be able to understand it. I've downloaded WinSCP3, and when i try to connect to my host using SCP, the message "Network error" appears. I'm sure the data are all right and i don't see what i'm doing wrong. could anybody help me?

Is there any more text in addition to "network error"?

Hi, please help! When I enter the winscplogin

with all the correct host name, port number, user name and user password and SFTP allback, it comes up "gethostbyname:unknown error" and asks me to say OK, or retry. Retry does not work. Can you help?

Can you try to specify IP address instead of hostname?
