Hi all,

I have an FTP server running on my laptop. I've configured WinSCP to contain a session called local host with a user account "NewUser" with password "Password1". I can connect to my localhost FTP server using the WinSCP GUI interface with on problems. However, I'm having problems getting scripting running. I've been reading through docs and testing (some success, some not). I'm wondering what is wrong with the following command: NewUser:Password1@localhost /command "get c:\LogFile\1.txt c:\temp\"

I keep getting Searching for host... network error: connection refused. No session.

Any suggetions?
