So, I have seen this problem on several machines (with the current version of WinSCP).

The behavior is that ti starts downloading a file and gets about 470M completed. WinSCP then appears to hang briefly, and then timesout.

Any ideas?

Do you have the problem with other SCP clients?

Nope. Other clients work like a champ.

I used a client on my Ubuntu box, and I used pscp from my windows box (same windows box that was experiencing problems with WinSCP.

I have seen the same problem on all my windows boxes (64-bit Win7), and it happens everytime.

is there any debugging output or logs I can generate to send along that might help?

Problem is that debugging slows down the transfer effectively preventing the problem to occur.

So, you are able to reproduce it?

So, how do you know that the problem won't occur. I am certainly willing to try turning on debugging/tracing and see if it is still reproducable.

Because I've tried it with other users already. But anyway, I'll send you a debug version.
