comand line login

Hello everibody,
i would connect to a server using comand line commands.

to do this i tried this line, but the error is 'Host not found'.
Now, using the GUI i can connect with the server, so i think the values are right, and in the comand line i have changed the value '@' with '%40'.

Where is my fault?

c:\BackUp\Target>c:\Programmi\WinSCP\winscp.exe open pippo%40aruba.it:password@ftp.massimo.arnaudo.name

Best regards
Massimo

Re: comand line login

Correct command would be:
winscp.exe /console /command "open pippo%40aruba.it:password@ftp.massimo.arnaudo.name"

Hello,
thanks for your answer.
I tried like you suggested, but the response is:

Searching for host...

Network error: Connection timed out.

I confirm that usung WinSCO GUI, there are not problem to login.

Any new suggestions?

Best regards

What protocol does the server support? Note that WinSCP by default uses SFTP. So if you need to use FTP for instance, you need to specify that in the open command.

You need to also specify port 21. WinSCP defaults to 22. I guess it should default to 21 with FTP, I'll fix that in the next version.
