Re: Only Certain/Specific File Types are Transferring

Please post complete log both from GUI and script showing successful and failed transfer of the same file.

Only Certain/Specific File Types are Transferring

Hi, everyone. Has anyone come across an issue with transferring certain file types?

I'm using WinSCP 5.15.9, using SFTP binary transfer method. File types like .txt or .log transfer without problems right away when using a simple script file.

However, when it comes to transferring encrypted file types like .gpg, then it looks as if the transfer starts & immediately hangs.

This is what I'm using for a script:
open sftp://XXXXX@XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX/  -timeout=35 -rawsettings Compression=1 AddressFamily=1 SendBuf=0 SshSimple=0 SFTPMaxVersion=3 -hostkey="ssh-rsa 2048 XxXxX=" -privatekey="C:\Users\xxx\xxx\Testing\xxx.ppk" -passphrase="XxxX"
put C:\Users\xxx\xxx\Testing\XXX.edi.gpg

Here's part of the log that gets generated:

If I use the WinSCP graphical user interface, then it seems to work without problems. I'd appreciate some input.

Are there specific parameters or switches I should be using/something I'm utterly missing? Thanks.
