Hi, hopefully somebidy can help me with this.

I get a new data files on a SFTP server each night. Then i need to have a script that automatically download this data file.

I have this script now, but each time I need to press C to copy the host key and press Y to copy the file. How do I get around this?

# Connect
open s"
# Change remote directory
cd /home/user/Outgoing
# Force binary mode transfer
option transfer binary
# Download all files to the local directory I:\Dat\39AESTA\Data\Recall
option confirm off
get *.* I:\Dat\39AESTA\Data\Recall
# Disconnect
# Exit WinSCP
