Scripting

Is there a way to specify ftp commands in scripts?
Like how do I send a
TYPE I
command. If I can specify commands will the client be aware of those commands (better said of their effect)?

Re: Scripting

You can do:
call TYPE I
Though WinSCP won't use the setting as it explicitly sets transfer mode before each transfer. Use option transfer to set transfer mode in script.

I guess what I was more interested in is this:
- if I start winscp with no /passive switch, but somewhere on the way I issue a
call PASV
command, will winscp "recognize it" and use passive mode from than on?

Also somewhat related to this... I noticed that whenever Filezilla notices that a
PORT *,*,*,*,*,*
command results in a 5** response it automatically switches to passive mode. It's kind of logical to do so too. Is there a way to reach to this kind of "result" with WinSCP?

No.

No. Though the next version will suggest you to use passive mode in error message, when the server fails to open active connection.
