Suggestion regarding storage of sessions for batch mode

Hi,
what do you think about storing sessions in separate config files instead of WinSCP.ini? Later in batch mode you could specify the full path to the config file in "open" statement. You could place the session configuration file for different sessions at different locations and secure that locations using Windows permissions. What do you think?

If the above is currently possible, it's my fault that I don't read the docs properly :mrgreen:

Thanks and regards,
Tilo

You can run the WinSCP.com batch filetransfer under different users in Windows. For each user you specify such a configuration file that is only accessible for that user. So you make sure, that other users don't get access to that file to read the session details (username, password etc.).
It's a little bit like you do it on UNIX using e.g. ncftp or lftp.

How would WinSCP know where to look for different configuration files?

Hi Martin,
the path to the configuration file could be specified in the "open"-statement. Or as a parameter to WinSCP.com. This feature could only be relevant in batch mode.

To all: Maybe a solution could be to use this feature:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/faq_script_ini
As I understand it, you could specify a WinSCP.ini containing a specific session configuration and you can specify the path to that file when using WinSCP.com. I think this could be the solution, but I haven't verified it yet.

Regards,
Tilo
