Cannot login when home directory doesn't exist

WinSCP 3.4.2: Home directory was set to /tmp/olc. I can login, until this directory exists. When directory is deleted, WinSCP cannot login. I don't know how to change home directory.

Could be WinSCP fixed in some way, to try parent directory, than pareny directory, until root directory? Or to ask user by prommpt for a home directory.

Re: Cannot login when home directory doesn't exist

When remote directory does not exist, error message should be displayed and default (home) directory should be opened. What exacly happes to you? Can you send me a log file?

Re: Cannot login when home directory doesn't exist

What is your shell? Some shells closes non-interactive session, when any error occures. BASH is recommended for WinSCP. Or try SFTP instead of SCP.
