Calling stored session from script changes Port #

Version 4.3.2. This is a fresh install on a windows server 2003 box. I have a stored session using FTP port 21. The server I'm trying to connect to is behind the same firewall and is a windows server 2003 box as well. I can connect through the GUI perfectly fine. However, when I use a script to automate the process I call winscp and the stored session. It fails to connect to the ftp server because somehow it using port 22.

This is the command I'm using and I use this same exact process on three other servers in about 30 other scripts.

"echo open USERNAME@IP > E:\Filetransfers\ftppgp.txt
echo put *.* >> E:\Filetransfers\ftppgp.txt
echo bye >> E:\Filetransfers\ftppgp.txt
c:\windows\winscp.exe /log=E:\Filetransfers\pgpsrvLog%month%%day%%year%.txt /console /script=E:\Filetransfers\ftppgp.txt"

Here is the log:

Sorry I lied about the OS of the FTP server I'm trying to connect to. It's a windows 2000 SP4 box.

I have also deleted the stored session and recreated it using a simpler name (ie "test").

Hi, Thanks for the reply. Yes the username throughout is what you see in the script. I was trying to be "fancy" and remove it from the post. Guess I missed one. I compared the setup of winscp 4.3.2 on this server and another server that does not have any issues. I noticed under storage that it was using Windows registry. So I switched it to INI file and it was able to connect through the script. It ran for two nights fine but now it is back to trying to use the wrong port and will not connect. Is there another setting I'm missing?

I was just looking through the event logs on the server and the day it stopped working the server rebooted. The ini file is still on the C drive.
"[Sessions\FTPSJH@10.10.16.54]
HostName=10.10.16.54
PortNumber=21
UserName=FTPSJH
FSProtocol=5
Password=Encrypted"

The setting on the stored session is still set to use INI file, but when the script runs it tries to use port 22 when I call the stored session FTPSJH@10.10.16.54.

I'm sorry I should have specified that the server that rebooted is the server I am trying to connect to (call it server1). Server1 is a local server behind the same firewall as the servers I'm running winscp on. To make things even more complicated server1 is our main server we run winscp to ftp files out of our network. Could something on server1 be causing my issues?

Hey Prikryl thank you for that. I found that I was actually calling a shortcut for winscp and not the one in the "program files" location where the ini file is also located. I have to wait until tomorrow morning to see if that makes a difference. I will post tomorrow morning. Thanks again!
