Re: Automation issue

It is not possible to securely encrypt passwords in a way that still allows for automatic use. Even the passwords stored in a site can be retrieved. They are not encrypted, they are only obfuscated. If WinSCP can retrieve them, anyone can.

See Protecting credentials used for automation.

Re: Automation issue

If I generate the Full URL it includes the password in clear text. I don't really want to store that in a command file. Is there a more secure way to accomplish this?

Automation issue

I have a saved login that also has the password saved and the port set to 8022. I can go into WinScp manually and log into the SFTP site without issue. However when I try to automate the process and use the command open FTPDICTATIONS@mcf-upgw1 I get log entries showing it is using port 22.
