here is the script
option batch abort
option confirm off
echo opening client
open sftp://userid:firstname.lastname@example.org:22 -hostkey="ssh-rsa 1024 <host key>"
echo client is Open
echo transfer Files
get -transfer=automatic *.pgp D:\data
echo Transfer complete
I've replaced the server and stuff with generic names for privacy.
the problem is, the file disappears from the remote sftp site, and never gets to the local server.
I had it with a -delete in the get statement, and when I wasn't getting the file, I took the -delete out and it still deletes the remote file, and doesn't transfer the file.
I have a very similar script connecting to an ftps site, and that works just fine.
I'm using winscp 5.1.3 build 2881
