Crying or Very sad
Hello,
I've got identification's problem via script.
Here what happens:
1. I've created my public and private keys
2. The public key is installed on the remote server
3. If I do a connection via GUI I'm able to start my connection (using my user and password)
4. I've created a simple script to start my connection
winscp.exe /console /script=example.txt /log=prova.log
this is my example.txt:
option batch on
open myuser:mypassword@server.com
close
5. My problem is the password that I use
(example:!Pippo01;)
6. in the docs section I found that I have to use the hexadecimal ASCII code but I don't understand how,
I'm trying in this way: open myuser:%21Pippo09%3b@server.com but it doesn't work.

Can you help me ?

Thanks
Marco

First you mention:
example:!Pippo01;
then
%21Pippo09%3b

They are obviously not the same.
Anyway I do not think you need to encode ! and ;.

You're right it's not a problem of special characters.
I tried both syntax on the password field (first with !Pippo01; than with %21Pippo09%3b)
but I can't login.
My problem is that my password it's not accepted.
If I do the connection via GUI it works, but if I try via script (using the same user and password that I use via GUI) in the log I've got an "Access denied").
This is what I'm using:
winscp.exe /console /script=prova.txt /log=prova.log
and the script prova.txt is:
option batch on
option confirm off
open myuser:mypassword@myserver.com
close
exit

Please can you help me I've to fix the problem before the end of this month ?

Thanks a lot
Marco

Are you sure you are using the same protocol in GUI and script?
You can try saving the options that work in GUI into stored session and use that stored session in script (open "stored_session_name").

Hi Martin,

if I use open "stored_session_name" it works but it ask me for the password.

PS: I forgot to tell you that via GUI it ask me for the password as well.
even if I've tried to tick the save password checkbox.

Thanks again

In the script you have
open xxxxxx:mypasswd@host.name.ch

But in the log I can see
. 2008-10-13 16:52:59.746 Session name: mysession

So it does not look like it is log for the script.

Hello,
as described both (saved session and script) are asking me for the password.

Here the last test with my saved session "Posta" using a batch file
prova1.bat (winscp.exe Posta /console /script=prova1.txt /log=prova1.log)
and prova1.txt is:
option batch on
option confirm off
cd /ega-b-t
ls
close
exit
This is the prova1.log:

Every time, there's something different in you posts.
This time you authenticate with encrypted private key. So WinSCP asks for its passphrase. That is not a password! Please read FAQ. If that does not help, come back.
