SFTP on windows server 2008 R2

Posted on 2015-01-09

Hi,
I need to use a script on a Windows 2008 server to connect to an sftp site to pull down a file. The site I'm pulling from just switched to sftp from regular ftp. I was using a perl script to pull the file down.
I can use pretty much any scripting language though. I'd just like to get this done quickly.

So, the thing is I need to create an automated way to SFTP a file from a remote server to my 2008 server.
I know 2008 doesn't natively support SFTP. Can someone suggest a good solution for this problem please?
Thanks!

You can install it on your server and schedule the downloads.

You can script something like this together with winscp:

"C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.com" /script="c:\<pathtofile>\testscript.txt" /ini="C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCP.ini" /log="c:\<pathtofile>\logscript.txt"

where <pathtofile> is the actual path to the file.
