Topic "Error changing remote directory"

Author Message

I am getting the error in the script output below when attempting to change the remote directory. I am able to authenticate and download from the root directory.

**Using PSFTP I am able to connect to the server and change to the remote directory just fine so it doesn't appear to be a server side issue**

Script Output:
batch abort
reconnecttime 120
confirm off

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.

Also show us the code and the output of psftp.
