I can connect just fine with WinSCP.exe and WinSCP.com but I am trying to execute an SSIS script task and I have never gotten a connection. I can't see the server (FTP HOST) log but maybe someone will provide that for me later.
I will upload my session log and also have a debug log if it helps but it doesn't appear to reveal any hints.
The local account you are using to run the script probably does not have a network connectivity privilege. Or some local or network policy intervenes.
Thank you for the quick reply, Martin, it sounds like you don't suspect too many, too few or an incorrect parameter in the mix. So, hmmm. I seriously doubt it is a privilege type error although it can't be ruled out at this point. When I first started programming we transferred data on punched cards and paper or magnetic tape (or just retyped it all again on a keyboard such as a teletype). I have developed enough SSIS packages to know that testing them in development, it is using my credentials not a test account. Once they are imported to Integration Services and run in a job using SQL Server Agent they use a service account UNLESS you set up Credentials and a Proxy. But you are not wrong in that there are ways the system can determine that my credentials are being used manually vs. automation, but if this kind of black is happening I am going to need to see it because I don't think that is the case.
I forgot to mention that I was connecting to an IBM (or equivalent) mainframe. If that gives you an idea of something to check, please let me know. Nobody on the other end has gotten back to me yet. Sometimes they respond 4 or 5 times in a day, other times it takes 4 or 5 days to respond.
I am not ready to give up yet, I will try listening to network links with WireShark and see if that helps me determine anything.
