Topic "WinSCP drops connection downloading large file"

Author Message


I am trying to download a very large zipped file (4,873,187,520 bytes) from a remote Linux machine to a PC using WinScp 4.2.9 (Build 938)

Within two or three seconds, a dialog box pops up with the message, "Server unexpectedly closed network connection", and two more messages:

Copying file 'sysprep-img.7z' fatally failed.
Copying files from remote side failed.

inside a smaller panel.

The connection then drops, and automatically reconnects. A varying number of bytes (up to 300 Kb) make it across.

Any suggestions?

What protocol are you using?
Have you tried it with another client?
