Topic "Sync Local Files With FTP Server"

I'm completely new to the scripting game and I was hoping someone could help me create a script to sync local files with a remote FTP server.

I have no problem using the GUI to complete this task, I just have no idea how to create the commands in windows Task Scheduler to sync the files every night.

I started with this

/command "option batch abort" "option confirm off" "open sftp://username:password@SERVERNAME.net/" "synchronize local [C:\test[/]]" "exit"

That doesn't seem to do anything. I tried FTP instead of SFTP and still got nothing. Can someone help me out?

Thanks!

It looks like using winscp.com with the /script tag is easier but with

open ftp://username:password@servername.cpmvp.net/

It still prompts for a username and password. Any ideas?

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
