Re: Unable to set password for the sftp site

I assume (as you are using a private key), that the Pass1234 is not a password, but a passphrase.

The passphrase is specified using -passphrase switch:

open sftp://USER@example.com -privatekey=C:\temp\SFTP\Auth.ppk -passphrase="Pass1234"

Unable to set password for the sftp site

Hi,

I am trying to create a bat file that can invoke WinSCP to download and upload the file on SFTP site.

Below is my code

SFTP_Code.txt
option batch abort

option confirm off
option transfer binary
open sftp://USER:Pass1234@example.com -privatekey=C:\temp\SFTP\Auth.ppk
get /home/SVC_CNOVA/in/test.txt
exit


Batch file code: Auto_Batch.bat
winscp /script=C:\temp\SFTP\SFTP_Code.txt


When I try to execute the batch file from the command prompt it prompts me to enter the password. I enter the same password I gave in the open command marked in bold above.

Can you please suggest me something.

Thank you.
