I couldn't find a post on a similar topic, so I post this issue here:
I have an old linux machine, and now when I start up an SSH connection, it really starts up slowly. Of course I will go and figure why is that.
However winscp gets a "timeout" after 15 seconds, and gives me a popup window which tells about this issue, giving me only "abort" as an option to continue. All other windows are unavailable, and how often I click on "abort" or "x" in the upper right, it won't go away. I can only kill winscp via the task manager.
So I have two things:
1) I think this might be a bug (in version 4.1.8)
2) Is it possible to set the threshold for this timeout in the preferences somewhere? If not, this would be a faeture request :-)
Thanks for reading...
