Upload works in GUI, in command line upload file created with zero bytes

So if I upload a text file via the GUI, everything works fine. When I try the same thing via command line, the file gets created on FTP server with zero bytes (almost as if the client creates a zero-byte file and then tries to update it with the data, but the update fails).

The command line I am using is:
put -transfer=automatic -nopermissions -nopreservetime -resumesupport=off blah.txt

The key part of the log follows; authentication etc. is fine:

Please attach complete session log files both from GUI and scripting.

So not a WinSCP issue...

So this turned out to be an IPS that decided the CLI was not trusted (apparently after allowing the initial connection). Never would have guessed...

Thanks anyway, and sorry for wasting anyone's time.
