hostkey and filezilla commands compatability across executables

So I have been at this for a couple of weeks now with no success, some of us are a bit slower than others. I originally start to attempt full automation, authentication through Pageant before I discovered that it appears that is cannot be set up as a service or similar. I moved on to use Filezilla and have found that to connect to my provider I need to use the hostkey command but the two do not seem to be compatible.

winscp.exe:
Supports -hostkey but not -filezilla nor /script
winscp.com:
Supports -filezilla and /script but not -hostkey

I am sure somebody must be doing this but I guess my first question is to confirm if it is possible to fully automate authentication with a key file and host key fingerprint? My second would be if I should be doing this another way? Perhaps there is a way to make Pageant run all the time. Every script I make needs to stay open for Pageant to continue running and I have failed to be able to make it a service. This means I would have to make a script that continually checks to see if Pageant is running and start it if it is not which would be an unreliable way to do it but if I have no choice I may have to.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

That's not correct. Both support all these switches.
If you have a specific problem, please show us what do you do and what problem/error do you get. A log file is always useful.

Thanks Martin, that is helpful to know. I guess I must just have a syntax error.
I have just shown the winscp.com interface details below.
# Example #1 - I expected this to fail as no hostkey was entered and it confirms I need the -hostkey switch.
## Relevant extract from logs and command line response:
Expected host key was not configured, use -hostkey switch.
* 2020-02-19 11:26:19.239 (Exception) **Expected host key was not configured, use -hostkey switch.**

# Example #2 - I expected to succeed as the hostkey was entered but it fails at the command line level indicating the -hostkey switch is unknown, a log file was not generated.
## Relevant extract from logs and command line response:
Unknown switch 'hostkey'.

# Example #3 - I expected to succeed as everything was entered on the command line rather than in the script file but it could not even see the -hostkey switch on the command line and the log shows the -hostkey switch was both accepted and not accepted.
## Relevant extract from logs and command line response:
Expected host key was not configured, use -hostkey switch.
. 2020-02-19 11:41:08.272 Switch: /hostkey=ssh-rsa xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx=
* 2020-02-19 11:41:08.600 (Exception) **Expected host key was not configured, use -hostkey switch.**

So in short it is really confusing.



#  Example #1
## Command Line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /script="C:\NSS\SFTP Client Profile\TestWinSCP.script" /log="C:\NSS\SFTP Client Profile\WinSCP-%date:~10,4%-%date:~7,2%-%date:~4,2%.log" /ini=nul /loglevel=2 /command "option batch continue" "option confirm on"

## Script:
open -filezilla "TestEnv"
exit

## Error:
In scripting you should not rely on saved sites, use this command instead:
open sftp://user@site.local/ -rawsettings ProxyPort=0

Expected host key was not configured, use -hostkey switch.

Re: hostkey and filezilla commands compatability across executables

OK, it's misunderstanding. You cannot combine -filezilla and -hostkey. What I was opposing was the idea, that it's different in .exe and .com (though maybe you tried something like winscp.exe -filezilla session -hostkey..., didn't you? – That indeed does not work).

I'll consider improving the -filezilla functionality to import even the host key.

But as hinted by WinSCP, you should not really use -filezilla. Use it only as a way to have WinSCP generate the correct open command for you:
open sftp://user@site.local/
(and add the -hostkey)
