I've tried using both WinSCP.exe and WinSCP.com 5.0.5 to download a file using FTPS but can't get it to work. I'm able to connect to the FTP server, but I can't download nor list any files on the FTP site. I did accept this FTP server's certificate by answering Yes the first time I connected to it. I'm running WinSCP on Windows XP.

(Note: I'm able to download that file on a linux box when I use lftp; however, I can no longer use that box and need to do this on a Windows box)

You're help would be greatly appreciated!

Here's what I tried using WinSCP.com
Code:

winscp> open ftps://userid:password@ftp.myhost.net -passive=on -explicitssl
Connecting to ftp.myhost.net ...
Connected with ftp.myhost.net, negotiating SSL connection...
SSL connection established. Waiting for welcome message...
Connected
Starting the session...
Reading remote directory...
Session started.
Active session: [1] userid@ftp.myhost.net
winscp> cd my_dir
/my_dir
winscp> get 20111114.FI1 c:\tmp\20111114.FI1
Connecting to ftp.myhost.net ...
Connected with ftp.myhost.net, negotiating SSL connection...
SSL connection established. Waiting for welcome message...
Connected
Starting the session...
Reading remote directory...
Session started.
Can't get attributes of file '20111114.FI1'.
Invalid access to memory
winscp>


Here's an automation script I tried doing the same thing and unable to download the file.
Code:

winscp.exe /console /script=c:\tmp\auto.txt /log=c:\tmp\winscp.log


auto.txt
Code:

open ftps://userid:password@ftp.myhost.net -explicitssl -passive=on
option transfer ascii
cd my_dir
get 20111114.FI1 c:\tmp\20111114.FI1
close
exit


And lastly, here's my log file from this exercise.
Code:

Thank you Martin. I ran your debug version and emailed you the trace log. I hope you can resolve my FTPS download problem!

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

To generate log file, enable logging, log in to your server and do the operation and only the operation that causes the error. 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 may email it to me. You will find my address (if you log in) in my forum profile. Please include link back to this topic in your email. Also note in this topic that you have emailed the log.
