Topic "Password enrypt for batchfile"

Hello,

In the forum I found unfortunately not the right, therefore here my question. Is it possible to specify the password in encrypted form?

I thought there was a way to generate the password before using a parameter for example WinSCP.com -enryptPassword "MyPassword". The output of the now encrypted passwords I can then use in batchfiles.

regards, Oliver

How would that work? It is not possible to securely encrypt passwords in a way that still allows for automatic use.

I could get my password to WinSCP encrypted. This encrypted output I then use for my batch files. It is actually only that the password is not in the plaintext in the batch stands.
