Hi! I have a question that I can't seem to find in the documentation:

I have created a saved profile in the GUI interface and can log into an SFTP site with no problem. I agree to the popup about storing the SSH key.

When I try to connect using a batch file, copying the example in the documentation, it gets as far as the password and then the batch file stops waiting for user input of the password. I can't figure out why the password isn't being saved for the command line but it is saved in the GUI.

I have no control over the server and can't upload any key files, so I am relying on sending a password to it.

Any help on anything I may have missed?

How do you open the session from script? Do you use name of the stored session? Are you sure the script can access the stored session? (see FAQ covering that).
