As the subject says, I can connect successfully with the vendor provided credentials when using the GUI, but cannot with the script.

Hello!

Problem is in Your password, it contains no-ascii letters. You can change Your pass to ascii letters password or have to convert non ascii letters to hex and prefix them by %
Seems WinScP could not accept non-ascii options. Smile

Well, that's not true.

Anyway, your hint maybe valid, but for special symbols, not non-ascii characters.

I'd suggest to enable password logging (/loglevel=*) and inspect the log file, if a correct password is used.

It was the special characters in the password.

I had them re-generate the password without them and it works now.

Thanks, LL!
