Re: FTP automation problem

Please attach a full session log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate the session log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.

FTP automation problem


I'm a bit new to automated file transfer to a given server but so far i had no problem transfering files using SFTP protocol.

Now i have a scheduled task using FTP protocol but files are not being transfered. The only difference between the script that is not working and those that work is the -hostkey="" part.

My command for connection is this:

open ftp://username:password@IP

I copy-paste this line to a webrowser and i can view the directory. Also i can login using winscp.exe gui

what is wrong?
