Hello
I need help on an unusual task to perform using Winscp .NET library (version 5.7.7).
This is how it looks like from Windows Commandline FTP client:
Code:
...
ftp> QUOTE SITE FILETYPE=JES
200 SITE command was accepted
ftp> GET 'X1.LTZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)'
200 Port request OK.
125-Submitting job 'X1.LTZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)' FIXrecfm 80
125 Unable to send X1.LTZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)
550 Transfer aborted
ftp>

In spite of the message "550 Trasfert aborted" it run some job on host and doesn't return any data.

I'm trying to move those commands on my new .NET exe based on Winscp library.
It works fine until it has to execute:
Code:
TransferResult = mySessionBMP.GetFiles("'X1.LIZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)'", ".\FTPUCBesito" & Now().ToString("yyyyMMddHHmmss") & ".txt", False, myTransferOption)

it fails with the error:
Code:

  <group name="get  -nopermissions -nopreservetime -transfer=&quot;ascii&quot; -- &quot;/'X1.LIZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)'&quot; &quot;.\FTPUCBesito20160601114526.txt&quot;" start="2016-06-01T09:45:26.418Z">
    <failure>
      <message>Can't get attributes of file ''X1.LIZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)''.</message>
      <message>File or folder ''X1.LIZ.FT.JCL($FX983C0)'' does not exist.</message>
    </failure>
  </group>


Ok, I'm aware the file doesn't exists, it's a sort of virtual file. Just I'm looking for a way to tell Winscp to try to get it without any check on remote file.
Is it possible? Any other idea to get that job done?

Thanks
martin

It won't work. WinSCP will always try to determine if the "name" is a file or a directory.
