Topic "Automation roadbump"

Author Message


Using WinSCP 4.2.3 on a Windows XP (SP3) machine.

Exceuting a batch file with the following statement in it:

C:\PROGRA~1\WinSCP\ /script=MyTextFile.txt > MyResultsFile.txt

MyTextFile.txt uses a stored session (setup as FTP SSL Explicit encryption).

Occassionally, it hangs. When I check MyResultsFile.txt, I'll find this message...

Error transferring file '/folderabc/xyz.csv'.
Transfer channel can't be opened. Reason: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.

Copying files from remote side failed.

Entering Passive Mode (69,20,41,39,193,238).
(A)bort, (R)etry, (S)kip, Ski(p) all:

So my problem is that this is automated and runs in the middle of the night...I'm guessing I need to tweak my stored session to (R)etry or (S)kip...but where and how?
