Automatic synchronization

I am trying to have remote directory update automatically...i.e. without ctl-s. Even with ctl-s I need to accept several screens. Ideally I would like to update my local directory and have remote reflect changes without any actions on my part. Is it possible? How?

Re: Automatic synchronization

You can write a script for that.
Start here: https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_automation
Though rather than a one-off synchronization, you probably want keepuptodate command:

You can also start synchronization (one-off or "keep up up date") in GUI automatically:

Re: Automatic synchronization

Many thanks. I managed to work it out after a fashion...but the links you gave will help.

After checking the appropriate parameters (many tries :-) ) and leaving keepuptodate open. Not smooth but works.
Thanks again.
