Why I cannot connect/transfer using script, when I can using GUI (or vice versa)?
There are two common reasons for that:
- You run script from a different environment (under a different account/service; with a different configuration) than the GUI. See another F.A.Q.1)
- You have your session configured differently in the script and in the GUI.
- Use a Generate Session URL/Code command to avoid common mistakes in manually typed URL’s or code; and to make sure all the settings from your GUI configuration is used in the script.
A common problem is special characters in some part of the session URL (typically a password or a username).
- Passphrase to an SSH private key is not a password, you need to specify it using
-passphrase switch, not in a password part of the session URL.
You can also enable a session logging both in the GUI (on Logging page of Preferences dialog) and the script (using a command-line parameter
/log) and compare the logs to find out what is different. Use a command-line parameter
/loglevel=* to enable a password logging and check if a correct password is used.
If you decide to seek a help, make sure you provide both complete logs, when describing your issue.
