Hi,
is it possible to access an SFTP server via an SSH tunnel by using the WinSCP command line tools?

I do not want to use Putty or any other tools to set up the tunnel ahead of time.

WinSCP allows selecting a tunnel in the GUI, but I can not configure it for command line usage.
Tried for hours with ini files and scripts...


Can anyone help?

cd WinSCP
winscp /console /script="C:\temp\myScript.txt"


and myScript.txt should contain.

Did you try the Tunnelxxxx parameters in the -rawsettings option?

I found this post while trying to do the same thing (non-interactive start of a session through a tunnel).

It almost works, but I'm still getting prompted for the password for the tunnel host.

I tried using TunnelPassword= but this doesn't seem to do anything.
I've tried it both with a cleartext password and also using the encrypted string lifted straight from the INI file.

Does anyone have a solution, or am I just being dumb ?

Edit: I've found the solution. You need to use the "TunnelPasswordPlain=" setting.
