I guess that it was not intention of putty author to allow -pw parameter to apply to passphrases as well. It is rather side effect. It is quite obvious from the -pw option description.FYI, Putty allows me to do this via command line which is why I was asking for it via WinSCP.
No I do not meant that it is overkill. It is extra layer of security to protect your private key when someone gets an access to your computer/harddisk. But only if you keep your passphare in your memory. If you keep it in WinSCP configuration on the same computer, that it has no effect.Isn't the password an extra layer of security, or do you consider putting a password on a key overkill?
