direct link to files, sftp://user1@sftp.server.com/testfile.zip

hi, i know that winscp is registered to open sftp:// and scp:// links, but can it be used to directly download a file if given this url?

sftp://user1@sftp.server.com/testfile.zip

or

scp://user1@sftp.server.com/testfile.zip

i have a passwordless private key so i can login without having to supply a password. is there any way to do this? i'm modeling it after the standard ftp://ftpusr:passwd@ftp.server.com/file.zip.

right now, if i set up a web page with the link above (scp://user1@sftp.server.com/testfile.zip), it opens winscp, i get prompted for my password, and then it says it can't cd to the testfile.zip directory. i'd like it to recognize my private key, and start downloading the file immediately like a normal http download. any ideas on if this will work? thanks, bob.

WinSCP cannot handle URL's pointing to file yet. But it is already on the wishlist :-)

winscp3.exe [(scp|sftp)://][user[:password]@]host[:port][/path]/[filename]

That would be great if we can have the additional commandline and not having to interactively mget/get a file:
winscp3.exe [(scp|sftp)://][user[:password]@]host[:port][/path][filename]

I'm not sure if forward slashes may not cause a problem. In any case, please post a log file.
