How can I convert my windows scripts to winSCP scripts

Hi folks,

I am brand new to WinSCP. I need to send multiple files to a remote site in a secure ftp. Here are what my current scripts look like:


RUN.BAT

@echo off
REM ------------------------------------------
REM This batch file will run an ftp upload
REM then delete files on the current computer.
REM ------------------------------------------
REM Start the upload
echo ----------------------------------
echo Start uploading at %TIME%
echo ----------------------------------
ftp -s:putfile.txt XXX.XX.XXX.XXX //runs the text file below
REM Done uploading, now delete the files on the local machine
echo ----------------------------------
echo Deleting local files
echo ----------------------------------
del D:\FTP_FOLDER\III to DOR\hello*.txt // deletes the files on my side after the ftp
REM copy over the files on the root to replace the one's just deleted
echo ----------------------------------
copy D:\helloworld*.txt
echo ----------------------------------
echo Upload complete at %TIME%.
echo ----------------------------------

KICKS OFF THIS FILE:

PUTFILE.TXT

jdoe // user name
jdoe // password
prompt
cd uploads
mput helloworld*.txt /files to be trasferred
bye

Thanks!

Re: How can I convert my windows scripts to winSCP scripts

First, you should read
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/guide_automation

But, anyway:

RUN.BAT

...
echo ----------------------------------
echo Start uploading at %TIME%
echo ----------------------------------
winscp.com /script=putfile.txt
REM Done uploading, now delete the files on the local machine
...

PUTFILE.TXT

option batch on
option confirm off
open sftp://jdoe:jdoe@XXX.XX.XXX.XXX
cd uploads
put helloworld*.txt
exit

Hi Prikryl,

When I reply I dont see an empty box and I can't add to the stream by typing at the bottom of your post. So I just deleted what was in there and started from the top again, is this right.

Re: How can I convert my windows scripts to winSCP scripts

Hi Prikryl

When I ran the code you gave me I got a "winSCP is not a valid win32 application"

I also got a "access denied"

Is there a certain location I need to run the batch files from?
Right now the files are 4 layers down. Does it have to be run with the path ie c:\program files\WinSCP script?

Can you give me a step by step process of how I need to do this.
Is a session necessary to do this like it is within the application?

To run the 'run.bat' before I just typed bat. Is that what I do here?

As these probable are not WinSCP specific, you should better ask someone who can see the problem on your screen. This way we could hardly solve anything. I'm sorry.
