I tryed setting up sessions on the fly, but that did not work, because having multiple instances of WinSCP running on each Server, everyone overwriting the changes I made while they where active, on exit.



'The ideas one gets AFTER pressing submit ...' :mrgreen:
Well I guess I could use a custom .ini/session for each instance ...
and not the WinSCP.ini ... :oops:

let me think about that ...
so - thx again for the faq_script_ini !!!

Huge Programm (and a great one !) - lots of Documentation ...
and well - who RTFM ? right :roll:

Anyway, why to you prefer an active mode?


Hello Martin,
thx for the link.
I am connecting a farm of 10+ Servers round robin to a 1000+ wending machines from different companies, sitting behind different firewalls and all using the same public ip ranges - of course ...
NATing that is already a BIG pain and PASV would add a lot of configuration on systems out of my control.
So setting up sessions for all these machines, on all the servers on the Farm would not be very efficient, because there are always some of the wending machines in repair, or getting a new module resulting in a new fingerprint.
Not to mention adding new machines ...
I would be updating those sessions all day long ...
Now I am using a central database with all needed information - easily updated ;) but that requires scripting (vb.net) to connect.
I tryed setting up sessions on the fly, but that did not work, because having multiple instances of WinSCP running on each Server, everyone overwriting the changes I made while they where active, on exit.
Well I guess I stick to 4.2.9 for the time beeing ;)
