Topic "Scripted synchronize doesn't seem to work"

Hi,

Firstly my apologies if what i'm asking is very stupid as i'm new to the product which i think is great by the way.

Basically I would like to sync all the from my local server to a remote server, both are running Win 2003. The remote server is running OpenSSH.

Now if I use the GUI interface to do the sync selecting the options remote and synchronize files this works perfectly. I need to be run from a script though.

Now here is the script I am failing with at present:

"C:\Program Files\WinSCP\winSCP.exe" /console /log=log.txt /script=copy.bat

Copy.bat >

option batch continue
option confirm off
open <user>:<password>@<server>
transfer binary
synchronize remote G:\wwwroot\testprod /cygdrive/c/Temp
close
exit


When this runs i get the following output:

winscp>synchronize remote G:\wwwroot\testprod /cygdrive/c/Temp
Comparing 'G:\wwwroot\testprod' with '/cygdrive/c/Temp'...
winscp>


At this point it returns to the command point and when i look at the folder nothing is copied.

Now if i change the command to local it happily sync the files.

Can someone please tell me if i'm missing something basic here?


Many thanks,
Simon
FYI here is the lof output for the failing sync:

As you connect to Windows server, you probably have to adjust DST session setting. I guess that in GUI you use stored session with setting adjusted. While in script you seem to open ad hoc session with default settings.
