File-Transfer with SCP
Copying file to host:
scp SourceFile user@host:~/TargetFile
Copying file from host and copying folder from host (with -r switch):
scp user@host:~/remotefolder . scp -r user@host:~/remotefolder TargetFolder
Note that if the remote host uses a port other than the default of 22, it can be specified in the command. For example, copying a file from host:
scp -P 666 user@host:directory/SourceFile TargetFile
Connect OneDrive over WebDAV
- After you log in to your OneDrive account, your URL should be like: https://onedrive.live.com/?id=root&cid=ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP. The ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP part is your "customer ID". Select it and copy it to the clipboard.
- Start WinSCP and create a new Login/New site node
- On the New site node, select WebDAV protocol and TLS/SSL Implicit encryption.
- Enter d.docs.live.net into the Host name box.
- Enter your Microsoft account credentials. If you have 2FA enabled, create new app password and use this for the password box.
- Press the Advanced button to open Advanced site settings dialog and go to Environment > Directories page.
- Paste your "OneDrive customer ID" into the Remote directory box and add a slash in front of it, i.e. like /ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOP.
In a commmand prompt run
winscp.com and login to a session. It is also possible to pass on all commands directly or attach a script with all commands.
Save this script to a file (e.g. WinSCPWebDAVExample.txt)
open https://firstname.lastname@example.org/ put copythisfile.txt /path/destination/ exit
Run the scirpt with WinSCP like this:
You can also run this example as a one-liner as follows:
winscp.com /command "open https://email@example.com/" "put copythisfile.txt /path/destination/" "exit"
I trigger winscp.com in a batch file as follows:
@echo off winscp.com /rawconfig Interface\SynchronizeParams=4096 /ini=nul /script=myscript.txt
/rawconfig Interface\SynchronizeParams=4096enables mirror mode when using synchronize. It is possible to set
-mirrorbut this didn't work for me.
- Force scripting mode to start with the default configuration with
My example script file to upload to a WebDAV server:
# Connect to WebDAV server using a password open davs://user%40domain.com:firstname.lastname@example.org/ # Settings option batch on option confirm off # Set local dir lcd "L:\o\c\a\l" # Set remote dir cd "/www" # Sync Files synchronize remote -delete -mirror "L:\o\c\a\l" "/remote/" # Exit WinSCP exit
