I'm using psftp.exe to automate a file download but need to connect with a private key as explained below. I am able to connect, however, the private key requires a Passphrase.
This procedure works but I have to enter the Passphrase from the keyboard, which defeats the process of running from command line. I would like to know if anyone can tell me how to send the Passphrase in the command line.
Using Putty's PSFTP.exe With A Private Key Command Line: c:\putty\psftp.exe firstname.lastname@example.org -i putty_id_rsa_1024.ppk -b c:\putty\myscript.scr Command Line Notes: Replace username with your login name and modify the "putty_id_rsa_1024.ppk" key name to match your key. In order to use a key, you will need to use puttygen.exe to generate, import, and or export your keys. PuTTY requires a putty key file to make a private key connection. myscript.scr file contents: cd / put File1.txt put File2.txt put File3.txt close Script Notes: Each command is a standard Unix navigation command.
As mentioned above, can anyone tell me how to send the private key Passphrase in the command line?
