Topic "Timeout when transferring from VMWare ESXi 4.1 Host"

When I try to download Large Files (.vmdk) off a SSH-enabled-VMWare ESXi 4.1 host,
connection times out ("Host is not communicating for bla seconds") after ~500Mb of transferred data.

Tried the current WinSCP 4.2.9 and 4.3 beta versions, behaviour is the same.

Is this a WinSCP-Bug or is it a VMWare-Limitation?

Help appreciated.

Do you have the same problem with other SFTP clients?

Just tried large transfers with pscp.exe (commandline) from the putty-package: works!

Hi,

I'm experiencing this issue as well.
Is there any solution for this issue?

Thanks!

Just select SCP instead of SFTP, you'll be fine. Smile

Any updates on this? I am having the same problem with version 4.3.2 connecting to ESXi. This is for SCP transfers using either GUI or console.

I want to be able to do a synchronize through a batch job, but cant get a normal transfer to work. I will try some older versions of WinSCP and see if this is something new.

Just thought that I should note that I am able to do this transfer using either putty (pscp.exe) and Veeam FastSCP.

I went back and tried version 4.2.6, but no luck.

...everything was working perfectly - then i installed 4.35.

every copy from esxi 4.1 to local hdd is stopping at 499.994.624 bytes.

i tried different settings - and also installed 5.04 beta (which is faster) but always the same problem...

here the same:

the only solution for me was installing 4.18 which is working fluently Very Happy
