Topic "Can't log in through command line. Can login via GUID."

Author Message



I can log in via the GUID fine. However when I try running a script containing the password it fails.

Here is the script:

echo open sftp.myuser:4FHe40; >> c:\FTP\Script.tmp

The only thing I thought it might be was the ';' in the password but I've tried escaping it with a ^ and % to no avail. I've also tried:

echo open "sftp.myuser:4FHe40;" >> c:\FTP\Script.tmp.

I've also tried using a generated session URL and it still fails.

Here is the log file:

Any help appreciated
