I need to move(copy and then delete) all the *.XML files from a directory on a remote secure FTP server to a local Server. I can do this interactively using WinSCP. WinSCP saves the connection session. I would like to automate the connection, transferring of files and logging off by using a batch file.
I have reviewed the information on the Putty download page but I cannot determine if I should be using PSCP or Plink or something else.
I reviewed many previous post but could not find this basic of a question addressed. Could you provide a link if it was covered previously? Is there thorough tutorial somewhere else? Or could you please give a sample command line that would do this?
Thanks in advance for you help.

Thanks,
pat

WinSCP 3.1 (coming out soon) will allow moving files (copying and deleting source) to local computer from remote server in scripting.
