Configuring winscp to use a proxy with ansible

Hi there

We're currently configuring some Windows 2019 servers with ansible.

I currently need to tell WinSCP to use a proxy to gain external access, and was hoping there's a way to accomplish this using ansible so I can automate it.

Has anyone accomplished this in the past, or know a way to do this?

I'm thinking maybe run some powershell scripts on the machine once connected with ansible?

Any help or advice greatly appreciated.

Re: Configuring winscp to use a proxy with ansible

I'm not sure what you ask for.

WinSCP supports proxies. You can script WinSCP, both using simple WinSCP scripting or using WinSCP .NET assembly (e.g. from a PowerShell script).

WinSCP GUI can generate templates for both the script and .NET assembly for you:

Hi Martin

Thanks for getting back to me

I'm looking through the links you've supplied, but not sure if they give me what I want.

When you open the GUI, you can enter a proxy server to use in all the communications that winscp uses. I'm looking for a way to enter those proxy details, but with a script, that I can run when I'm configuring the software on the servers automatically.

Does that explain it a bit better?

Thanks again for replying.

And this part of my answer didn't help?
