My client uploads a small text file to their web server repeatedly, all day long.
We use a batch + script file.
Recently their hosting service changed the format of their usernames.
The format is now "firstname.lastname@example.org".
This is the username. Followed by the regular password.
The command-line executable no longer functions in this mode.
Instead of connecting and uploading the text file it should, it sits at an authentication prompt for a few seconds before disappearing, and fails.
Here is the Open command I am using:
open sftp://email@example.com:firstname.lastname@example.org -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 <the rest of my hostkey>"
Here is the action I want to take:
put -preservetime c:\mypath\test.txt /
I am able to use the command-line utility to login manually from the prompt, it just doesn't seem to like it in a batch file with script.
Figuring a WinSCP update might resolve the problem, we are now using the 5.24 beta.
In the Windows version, "Keep remote Directory Up to Date" is what I use to do what I want, but it gets interrupted several times per day.
We need it to run unattended reliably and the command-line more or less did that.
Any help is much appreciated.
