Output redirection for WinSCP.exe... not WinSCP./com

Hi,

I am trying to incorporate a timeout parameter (/timeout=90) into my batch file. I know that WinSCP.com does not support this but WinSCP.exe does. What WinSCP.exe does not support is output redirection, and the /log option is far too verbose. I am incorporating the WinSCP response into the log of my batch file, so I need to have the appropriate amount of information sent back (redirection was a good amount).

Is there a way to incorporate output redirection into WinSCP.exe or have have less verbose logging? If WinSCP.com would accept /timeout parameters then that would be fine too.

This is my first time using either tool in this way, so hopefully I am not missing anything here.

Thanks,
Jason

Re: Output redirection for WinSCP.exe... not WinSCP./com

Do not use /timeout switch on command line for scripting. Use -timeout switch of open command:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/scriptcommand_open

To answer your questions:
1) No way to use output redirection with winscp.exe. That's restrictions imposed by Windows.
2) winscp.com does support /timeout switch, but it's deliberately not documented as it is not recommended to do that.

Thanks for the clarification. Setting the timeout at the open command makes sense.
