Hi Dhawi,

The "semaphore timeout period has expired" error is a generic network error, and usually indicates a problem with the machine that SecureCRT is running on or a problem with the machine's network configuration.

Individuals seeing this problem indicated that the problems were related to one or more of the following issues:
- DHCP assigning network addresses (some resolved by going static).
- Slow networks.
- Sometimes disc problems, or file retrieval problems.
- Reports of port scanners or other network security tools probing the network.
- Difficulty connecting to specific ports on a non-loopback network interface.
- Wireless networks.
This issue cannot be resolved in SecureCRT. I recommend reaching out to your network administrators to troubleshoot this behavior further.
