Qustion regarding robustness of batch script

Hi there,
we are using a batch file like this:
option echo on
option batch abort
option confirm off
option reconnecttime off
option transfer binary
open user_id@host
cd remote_dir
lcd local_dir
put local_file
ls
exit    

When we run that in batch mode using winscp.com and if the transfer fails for whatever reason, winscp retries, despite the fact that "option batch abort" and "option reconnecttime off" has been set.
We have fixed this disabling everything in "Preferences" - "Endurance" - "Automatic reconnect".

Is this the way it should be? Wouldn't it be better if the batch parameters over rule the setting in "Preferences".

Thanks for your thougts,
Tilo

The batch parameter governs unrecoverable errors only.

Hi Martin,
thanks for your reply. Regarding:
option reconnecttime off    
Should this option not overrule the settings in "Preferences"? Sorry, if I misunderstood you.

Thanks,
Tilo

Yes it should.

Hmm, but to me it seems, that it doesn't. Could you have a look at it? Or should I provide a test scenario?

Thanks,
Tilo

Hi Martin,
I've sent a test scenario to your e-mail address.
