Topic "WinSCP causes remote server to block my IP"

Suddenly since yesterday morning WinSCP causes remote server to block my IP. Further access to the server is then impossible.

The firewall on the server reports multiple connection attempts from WinSCP within a short time and then regards it as a hacking attempt and blocks my IP.

I have been using WinSCP for several months to the same server without problems.

What causes this? Can I fix it?

If you enable logging, can you actually see WinSCP connecting that often?
