To avoid the ABCDIC issue listed here I'm trying to use directly the command line.
I hoped the -transfer on the GET command could make the trick, but with no success.
I'm sure the file exist in the default folder because I used copy/paste from the working Microsoft ftp script (i.e. type A get sx-liquidati-au)
C:\WinSCP>winscp /command "open ftp://isp:@188.8.131.52 -rawsettings ftpAccount=815" "get -transfer=ascii sx-pagati-au" "exit"
