got it :)
according to the link above you posted: "any script command argument that includes spaces is expected to be surrounded by double-quotes within the command"
so I changed the code to (triple quotes in a row :) ):
%SECUREFTP% /log="E:\Client\Logs\test.log" /command "option batch abort" "open -timeout=60 sftp://Username:Password@188.8.131.52:22/test/ -hostkey=""ssh-rsa 1024 x2:v4:n6:f8:z1:c3:65:77:45:32:98:8b:7b:09:9j:s0;ssh-rsa 1024 g5:v4:n6:p8:z1:c3:88:77:45:xj:98:8b:7b:h9:9j:s0""" "put -transfer=ascii -nopreservetime -nopermissions -delete "E:\Host\Primary\Test\fingerprinttest.csv"" "exit"
and it works now!
Thanks for the pointers guys
You do realize that double quotes means this -> "
It does NOT mean this -> ""
Even if the command line is working, there is still something that looks very odd about it. I don't use command line scripts for what I do, I use the NET assembly, but if you gave me a temporary username/password I would be able to figure it out. Nonetheless, if you are happy with what you have then don't worry about it. Take care.
