Hi,

Thanks for providing us such a nice program.

I am using WinSCP to transfer files from my Windows machine to remote linux machine.

I get "Timeout waiting for ..." error when I try to transfer some large file for. e.g. 10 GB file.

I am using WinSCP.com with SFTP (and WinSCP 4.1)with automatically generated scripts.
Script works fine for files of sizes upto few 100 MBs.

I searched into forums about this problem ,but none of the posts are relevant to the problem I am facing.
Can you tell me where the problem is ?
Thanks in advance.

Do you mean Timeout waiting for external console to complete the command?

Yes, the same error.

But I am not redirecting output of WinSCP.com or WinSCP.exe.

What I am doing is running a bat file from command prompt that calls WinSCP.com /script=myScript.tmp and this WinSCP.com copies the files.

Will using keepalive option help ?

I did not use keepalive because while copying we are sending data continuosly , so server should not timeout.

Thanks for your timely response.

No keepalive won't help.

Can you send me an email, so I can send you back a debug version of WinSCP to track the problem? Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have sent the email. Thanks.

You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile.

Hi,

I am using WinSCP to transfer files from Windows Server to Windows Server.

I get "Timeout waiting for ..." error when I try to transfer some large file for. e.g. 18 GB file.

I am using WinSCP.com with SFTP (and WinSCP 4.2.9)with automatically generated scripts.
Script works fine before with a file of 10GB.

I searched into forums about this problem ,but none of the posts are relevant to the problem I am facing.

Thanks in advance.
