And for the same reason WinSCP does not work.

setupterm: could not find terminal

There's something on the remote side (typically some command executed from some startup script) that requires an interactive terminal. Most probably it's actually the "GUI" the "requires 3 times to press enter". It's not compatible with the non-interactive terminal used by WinSCP.

It closed automatically after connection.

Re: automate complex connection activity

No we do not have VM for this.

Anyway, from the log, I do not even think the server is waiting for the Enter.

Try to login using PuTTY with "Don't allocate a pseudo-terminal" option tuned on. What would it do?

Re: automate complex connection activity

there is no ability to send chr(13) three times there, isn't it?

But what about changing source code specially for this task?
I red about compiling, and there are so many requirements - install one, then second, and so on.

I am pl/sql developer. I think that I can understand and change C code.

May be, you have preconfigured virtual machine for compiling WinSCP source code?

automate complex connection activity

Hi all!
at connection I get error (log):

It is because shell is not bash - it is custom server script, that requires 3 times to press enter, and only after this it starts bash.

Is any ability to automate this moment: do not send "WinSCP: this is end-of-file:0", but send "WinSCP: this is enter:13" three times?
