Hello,

I am using WINScp to automatically download several .zip files from a third party ftp server. On the scheduled task I have done everything that the guide on this site has told me to do and the log files post this.

. 2015-05-20 15:18:44.979 Looking up host "open "Location""



Ok. SO most of it looks good of course so I think the issues revolves around my arguments section of it. Below are my arguments.

Quote:
/command "option batch abort" "option confirm off" /log="E:\Dir1\Dir2\Logs\Winscp.log" "open ""Location""" "get ""\*.zip"" ""E:\Dir1\Dir2\Dir3\""" "exit"


Ok so when I manually use the program to connect to this ftp site I use FTP and a TLS connection. It has my credentials saved under the "Location" name. I have tried using


Quote:
"open ""ftp://user:password@ftp.location.net/"""


but in the log files it just states Looking up host "open sftp"

Any help here?

You cannot insert the /log switch in the middle of the scripting commands.

Also note that with 5.7 and newer, you do not need the "option batch abort" "option confirm off".

The correct syntax is:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" /command "open ""Location""" "get ""\*.zip"" ""E:\Dir1\Dir2\Dir3\""" "exit" /log="E:\Dir1\Dir2\Logs\Winscp.log"
