When running from command line and specifying -rawsettings Localdirectory=\\10.x.x.x\share\folder, I get the error:
---------------------------
Error - WinSCP
---------------------------
UNC paths are not supported.
---------------------------
OK Help
---------------------------

I would LOVE to be able to put in the actual path instead of having to do a local folder.

Hmm, I do notice that when using the scripting file, running get *.* \\10.x.x.x\share\folder\ works 100% fine. I'll just use this instead. Smile

Support for having a UNC path in a local panel of the GUI is planned:
http://winscp.net/tracker/show_bug.cgi?id=133

But you cannot have the UNC path as the current working directory in Windows. Try using cd \\10.x.x.x\share\folder\ in console (cmd.exe). It does not work.

So in scripting this will never work.
