Topic "Password Twice"

Author Message


WinSCP always asks me for my password after I save changes to the first file I edit. When I login I enter my username and password, and after I edit my first file and save it, WinSCP asks for my password again, but never after that. Is that the expected behavior and if so, why? If I already authenticated, why do I have to do it again?

Great program by the way. Very Happy
