I have been doing this using ws_ftp, as it has a scripting utility which is very good. I have placed a icon on the desktop, and clicking this icon, sets the script running in the background, uploading all the files and images. The user doesnt have to worry about the software or how it works.
I have come across winscp and it looks great, i particularly like its ease of use for sftp connections.
My questions are quite simple,
From reading around the site I have seen that scripting is possible, but I cannot find any info on how to trigger this without the user having to open winscp, is it possible to set up a icon on the desktop and have the script run in the background with maybe just a console window open?
Also is it possible to use only the scripting part of the software? For instance allowing clients to download a package that has the software (and the script and connection details) already set up, but not the whole thing. Just install and it installs the bare essentials, as well as a desktop icon which runs the script to upload. Would I be able to do this without hacking the installer?
Look forward to hearing from you
