Use "scp://username:password@host:/file" in Open / SaveAs dialogue boxes

This request is not necessarily WinSCP specific but ...

It would be really nice to be able to use a URL like ...
scp://username:password@host:/file

in Open, SaveAS, Run, etc dialogue boxes.



This would sort of negate the need for multiple files to be passed to and from a local editor. All you would need to do is open the file (via scp) from within that editor.

You mean the dialog boxes of the other applications? Have you ever seen it (possible with other protocol...). I can hardly image how to implement that, if it is possible at all.

how about:
"winscp366 sftp://username:password@securehost mget file*"
from command line? That would be really useful. Thanks.

Full scripting/automation will be included in the next major version.

Pretty sure it's possible. I'll have to do some research first. Already we can do ftp://whatever in dialogue boxes, I suspect it's just another URI handler to do scp://

I'm pretty sure we can all agree that it would be really useful.

I'm looking forward for the results :-)

Not for nothing, but for command line functionality, just use the PuTTY tools. There is already a command line set of tools included in the full download. No point reinventing the wheel, great as WinSCP is.
