Hi,
I am writing a Python 2.7 code to perform tasks with files on AWS ec2 instances, such as:

- load file from local windows PC to ec2 folder
- open new directories on ec2
- copy files from ec2 folder to another ec2 folder

I already have WinSCP installed and I set up saved connections to all of the ec2 servers I intend to work with. Currently I am manually loading the files from my PC to ec2, and running linux commands via PuTTY. So i just want to automate the process.

I am new to Python, WinSCP and coding in general, but from what I gather WinSCP can be accessed grammatically, via Python, and do some or maybe even all of the tasks listed above (btw i use boto to load to s3 but with ec2 boto have no such options).

Important to mention that I use ppk instead of password when connecting to ec2.

I saw the guids in this site (https://winscp.net/eng/docs/scripts) and googled around quite a bit, but couldn't get it work right.

Would much appreciate if someone could point me to the right path.

The next version of WinSCP (5.8.2) will be able to generate an upload script.
