Hello, I am a fresh use on SSH FTP. I have some question which hope you guys can give me a hand. Thanks. Smile

Question 1) I just create a SSH FTP server, then create a ftptest user with the "password authentication" only. So the user id is bind on the password only and not the "private key" file. This is because the private key format is differ between server and client. Is that the winscp can read other format private key file? So the ftp connection is only "password authentication", is that considered secured or the SSH is not running?

Question 2) I have no idea on the automated ftp process. I tried to ftp by "winscp3.exe test1@128.230.65.108 /upload *.txt", then the winscp will ask for confirmation and I have to put the full file name as well. This will causing the full automated ftp process not success. Is that the ftp with ini file will solve this problem? Anyone can give some advise on ftp via ini file for automated ftp process?

Question 3) Is there anyone know the related link to explain more for winscp on the scripts?

Question 4) Is winscp can connect to the SSL FTP server with automated support(script)?

Thanks for dealing with me. I hope that you guys can help me on these issues. Thanks Laughing

regards,
lionlion

WinSCP understands only SSH. So if you connect with it you connect with SSH. However password authentication is less secure the PKI authentication.

Scripting/automation will be included in the next major release.

There are no scripts, see above.

WinSCP does not support SSL. If you mean SSH, see above Smile
