I am downloading files from sftp via rebex. But when the files are very large download is not working. If the file size is very large in the range of 80000 or so are fetched time out issue is coming.

I want to fetch top 100 files initially and proceed with the next fetch step wise. Is it possible to do so and avoid time out.

What i saw was using Getitems method directory can be filtered or the entire directory with sub folders

I am having only a single folder and the need is to limit the file count to 100 or so while fetching from sftp .

Applies to: Rebex SFTP

Please, create the communication log as described at KB article and send it to for analysis. We can diagnose the timeout issue.

For single folder, you can use Sftp.GetList() method. With combination of Sftp.ListItemReceived event handler, you can fetch files on the fly. See Listing directory content - on the fly for more details.
