Access denied

I've just started using WinSCP and think its a great tool. I'm using it to pass files around various networked PCs.

On one PC which is part of a domain I'm synchronizing files to another PC within a workgroup over the network.

Using the GUI, I can make a connection and transfer the files manually. All works ok except the connection keeps timing out and reconnecting and sometimes asking for the password again. I also can't delete files from the destination, access denied!!

Ultimately I want to use a script to transfer files on a routine basis but the script does work. The script works good on one PC so I know the contents is correct, when on this PC it doesn't work, although I have changed the connection details.

I'm not sure if you talk about two different servers or two different client (local) machines.

Re: Access denied

Then I do not understand what you mean by "The script works good on one PC ..., when on this PC it doesn't work", if you connect from one client to one server only. So when does it work and when not?
