Topic "SFTP Batch authenticating but not performing actions"

Author Message


C:\Program Files\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe /console /command "option echo on" "option batch abort" "option confirm off" "open s" -hostkey="ssh-dss 1234 65:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx" "ls " "cd /DropOff " "put c:\uploadfile.txt" "exit"

The process successfully creates a session, but it doesn't execute the ls, cd, put or exit. The console stays upon with the session active. I am able to then manually enter the ls, cd, put and exit commands manually and the file transfers.

Is there something that I need to do to make the actions execute automatically.

I've spent a number of hours on and I can not seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong.

All ideas are greatly appreciated.

Note the quotes around -hostkey switch.
