Please attach a complete session log file both from the GUI and the code.

Hi Guys,

I am getting the following error after generating the code.
I am able to connect fine on WinSCP, however need to script the download of files. Any ideas?

Exception calling "Open" with "1" argument(s): "Connection has been unexpectedly closed.
Server sent command exit status 0.
Authentication log (see session log for details):
Using username "nwcomputing".
Authenticating with public key "rsa-key-********".
Authentication failed."
At C:\Users\NWAdmin\Downloads\Win\Download.ps1:19 char:5

Connecting to SFTP server using ppk file instead of password

Hi Guys,

Wonder if someone can please point me in the right direction for a PowerShell script that will allow me to connect to a folder on a SFTP server, download a file and delete it off the server.

Having a bit of trouble piecing together ones I find online.
