Topic "Port issues in Script"

Author Message

I am trying to script a SFTP upload to port 10022. Here is the code: open s -hostkey="ssh-rsa 2048 XX". When I call the script, the session times out; Searching for Host; Network error: Connection to "" timed out. When I look at the log, the line Connecting to shows port 22 - the script returns to the default. Running this in the GUI interface works like a champ. I have tried to specify the port in the script - but, it is as if the port gets ignored during the connecting. I am using WinSCP version 5.5.6 (Build 4746). Any advice?

Where did you get this syntax from? (This is real question. I wonder if we need to improve our documentation somehow).

The correct syntax is: s

If you have you session working in GUI, you can use Generate URL function:
