FTP transfers failing after WinSCP upgrade

Just inherited a file transfer solution that was using WinSCP V5.1.0.2625 to FTP between networks to an MS IIS service on W2K8R2. Everything ran as expected.
After upgrading the client to WinSCP V5.19.5.11933 all the FTP transfers fail with "access denied". The userid and password used are valid and not locked out.
Using Task Schedular a .cmd is run to invoke WinSCP with a WinSCP script. All pretty simple on the face of it!
What has changed between WinSCP versions that could cause the failure?
open ftp://userid:ComplexPassword@10.100.xxx.x:2121 -explicitSSL -hostkey="xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:f9:b3:e4:55:2b:17:dc:c9:fe:44" -timeout=30
cd /TransferIn
lcd D:\TransferIn\
get *
exit
The resulting logfile:

Re: FTP transfers failing after WinSCP upgrade

Can you post log file from 5.1.0 too? Are there any special characters in your credentials?

Did you edit the PASS command in the logs? The 5.19.5 log show 2-letter password, while 5.1 log shows 25-letter password. Please double check the password in the 5.19.5 script. Also, the logs show that you are not using the same script. Please test the two versions with the exactly same script and in the exactly same environment.

If the passwords, scripts and environment match, can you try to find out, what is the last version of WinSCP that works with the password, script and environment used by 5.10?

Martin,
I think it's todo with special characters in the password.
The 3rd character of the password is in fact $, so I substituded it for %24 and it works.

You said, "The 5.19.5 log show 2-letter password, while 5.1 log shows 25-letter password"
Could WinSCP be only recognising the first 2 valid characters then dropping out at the $?

I will do more testing to confirm but pretty sure it special characters in the password, in the scripts.

The $ is not a special character for WinSCP.
Are you putting the $ to manually created script file? That should not cause any problems.
Or are you actually generating the WinSCP script in some scripting language, where $ sign has special meaning (such a PowerShell or PHP)? Then the $ won't make it to the WinSCP script.
Enable password logging using /loglevel=* to see the exact commands (including the password) that WinSCP reads from the script. If you can reproduce WinSCP reading a different password, that what is stored in the script file, please post the script file (even with fake credentials).

Hi Martin,

Had to use Portable version of V5.19 so as not to interfere with existing setup but clearly shows the issue with passwords. It looks like $ is a special character

The script invoked via MS Task Scheduler:
option batch continue
option confirm off
option transfer binary
 
# logon details to drop server
open ftp://LogonId:VJ%3BP%24tXpN6SMZiEsa%24ydquMbX@xx.xxx.xxx.x:2121/ -explicitSSL -hostkey="obsfucated"
 
cd /IntelliUpdate
lcd D:\Transfer\IntelliUpdate
 
# Get files from \transfer\Intelliupdate to equivalent on IL5 server
Get *.* d:\transfer\IntelliUpdate\
exit

The captured logfile with loglevel=*:

So just to clarify, the existing WinSCP V5.1 script contained % and $ in the password but when I upgraded to V5.19 the scripts failed.
After testing and amending the password to reflect %3B and %24 for those characters and running script with WinSCP V5.19 it all works.

Sorry, but the log you have posted does not "clearly show the issue with passwords". Can you post a log with your original script that failed (with /loglevel=*)?
