  • Which version of Rebex SFTP do you use?
  • Can you reproduce this easily? If so, how can we reproduce it ourselves?

Oh, I see! However, this behavior is by design. In case of TCP/IP connectivity errors, applications CANNOT prevent the operating system's TCP/IP layer from failing sooner if no connection can be established. So for connection establishment, the Timeout value is just the upper limit. TCP/IP socket connect attempt timeout is an OS setting, and to enlarge the timeout value, you have to tweak your operating systems TCP/IP settings.

How to changes in OS setting

There used to be TcpInitialRTT/TcpMaxConnectRetransmissions settings that could be changed (see
https://serverfault.com/questions/193160/which-is-the-default-tcp-connect-timeout-in-windows for details), but apparently, these no longer apply to recent Windows versions. I have not been able to find any replacement settings - please contact Microsoft support to find out whether this is still possible, and how.
