Thanks guys for the info!!! I could finally fix my problem. It works good now.:)
No worries guys I have found the problem, my version of Winscp is older and does not recognise switches
I know I can login with the following
But then how do you parse the ppk key after?
I'm extremely new to this so if I'm asking silly questions do excuse me, although I have spent considerable time trying to resolve this personally.
I am writing a script to eventually get several sets of files daily. I am writing and testing the script bit by bit but unfortunatly I have not even managed to logon succussfully yet :oops: . The logon requires the parsing of a ppk key. So far I have written in format of below:
option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp_USER:PASSWORD@188.8.131.52:22 -privatekey=C:\Private.ppk
But when I run this I am getting the message:
Too many parameters for command 'open'
Any help would be fantastic - I have scoured the winscp site but can find nothing of any real help, I have tried using the / switch instead of - to define the parsing of the private key but it seems I'm confused on the simplest of fundamentals....
