Putty SFTP: one line command to access an SFTP server

Is it possible to specify a one line command in putty sftp that handles connecting to a host and username/password authentication? I have tried the following command and it fails:

psftp user@212.x.x.52 -pw password12345

We are using global scape FTP secure server 3.3 as the destination FTP server to conenct to (is there a setting that needs to be enabled to allow command line sftp connections). The FTP login details are correct. Any information appreciated.

I did include the pw parameter in the question:

psftp user@212.x.x.52 -pw password12345

But it fails if I try to connect using the -pw paraneter. If use the psftp user@212.x.x.52 then it will request a password and connect successfully. I need a 1 line command to do all of this in one go and connect to the sftp server.

Oops, sorry :-) However -pw should work, BTW: You'll have to place the options (-pw) in front of the user@server part!
