Automate SFTP upload via WinSPC on windows
Get, and install, the latest version of WinSPC.
Open a text editor and paste the following
open sftp://USER_NAME:PASSWORD@ftp.d2o.biz/ -hostkey=”ssh-rsa 1024 OaK8ia0WT5HWLzpC3i10bG7PUp2XCU7IFf67Lzl/70A=”
put d:\temp\Test.txt /
USER_NAME = The user name provided by d2o
PASSWORD = The password provided by d2o
D:\temp\Test.txt = The File you want to upload
Save the file as, for example sftp_upload_instructions.txt
Open a new text editor and past the following
C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP>WinSCP.com /ini=nul /script=d:\temp\winspc\ sftp_upload_instructions.txt
C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP>WinSCP.com = The correct path to the installed WinSCP.com
d:\temp\winspc\sftp_instructions.txt = The correct path to the instructions file you just created.
Save the file as, for example, sfp_upload.bat
You can now test your script by opening a command prompt, browse to your bat file and execute it and then use the windows scheduler if you want to schedule the transfer.
