Re: WinSCP Automated task scheluder to transfer new files

1) You cannot use Windows path to refer to remote files, even if it is a Windows server. The SFTP servers have a virtual directory tree. You have to use paths to that virtual tree. Connect with WinSCP GUI to see that paths the server is using.

2) If the paths contains spaces, you have to enclose the path with double-quotes.

Though it's likely that the virtual path won't contain spaces.

WinSCP Automated task scheluder to transfer new files

Hello¡¡¡

I am new in this forum and I want to configure an automated transfer between WinSCP (as SFTP client) and a SSH Server.
I have created a new scheduled task in control panel, following https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_schedule

My configuration is:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe"
/log=c:\TEST\winscp.log /command "open sftp://USER:TARGET_PC@XX.XX.XXX.XXX/ -hostkey="ecdsa-sha2-nistp384 384 16:ec:53:0c:02:a9:e0:02:25:d3:b3:70:f9:75:53:12"

However, this task does not connect to the server.

Could you support me?

THANKS
