Topic "Trouble with Scripting command"

Author Message


I'm having issues figuring out how to script Winscp to connect to my FTP server. I know I must just be missing something simple but I'm not able to see what it is.

I have an FTPS with an Implicit encryption that I'm wanting to script connecting to and uploading / Downloading a specific file. I'm trying to get it connected first before I move to the automation part, however typing "winscp.exe ftps://<ip>:990 /implicit" prompts for a username, but never actually hits my server that I can see.

If anyone could help step me through winscp I would appreciate it it. This is the first I've ever tried to use it.

In WinSCP (as opposite to e.g. Windows command-line FTP client), there's no distinct connection and authentication steps. So, you have to specify your credentials in open command.
