Can upload file in GUI but not via script

I am able to upload a document to FTP server via WinSCP GUI, with warnings, however I cannot do this via simple script
open sftp:
put * -nopermissions
exit
In log I can see that the username and password is accepted fine however the same credentials that work in GUI do not work via script.

I found this stack overflow post but I'm confident my account has access to create files, otherwise I wouldn't be able to do it via GUI, dragging a file into the FTP server folder.
WinSCP: Permission denied. Error code: 3 Error message from server: Permission denied
Running Version 6.1.2 (Build 13797 2023-09-19)
Anyone else run across similar issues?

You are connecting to a different host (IP) in script and GUI.

Also, in GUI you are uploading to /sftpgateway-i-04f566964c5b7ff21/greenthumbindustries/uploads/.
While in script, you are uploading to /uploads.

Thanks Martin! The connection commands were generated from GUI so that wasn't the issue, the remote directory/folder was. I didn't realize FTP server directed me into a series of subfolders, upon login, via GUI method. The upload is working, with errors, after changing directory to match.

Remaining question is about the set stat errors, see below. In my script I'm using put * -nopermissions. Is there a proper put switch option I should be using to ignore permission and stop SETSTAT from being attempted in the first place?

The -nopermissions is default, so it's typically not necessary. But you need -nopreservetime.

See Upload of file .. was successful, but error occurred while setting the permissions and/or timestamp. If the problem persists, turn off setting permissions or preserving timestamp. Alternatively you can turn on ‘Ignore permission errors’ option.
