Need a Powershell script

Hello Experts,

I need help to get this script converted to Powershell or VBS script, I have winscp that connects to a remote directory and synchronize files. I don't have to even synchronize but I just want to establish the connection, below is the script.

I downloaded the winscpnet.dll as per the WinSCP site , this will work with powershell. Below is the batchfile that I want to convert to powershell.

option batch abort
option confirm off
open sftp://sftpuser04:password123!@lynn-vs2.cloudapp.net -hostkey="ssh-rsa 2048 d5:71:6a:0d:60:99:23:c4:63:18:55:54:5a:fb:79:05"
synchronize both C:\Temp\Target /home/sftpuser04/Source
exit

Thank you

The website has examples:
https://winscp.net/eng/docs/library_powershell#example

Essentially:
$ErrorActionPreference = 'Stop'
Add-Type -Path "C:\Program Files (x86)\WinSCP\WinSCPnet.dll"

$session = [WinSCP.Session]::new()

$config = New-Object -TypeName WinSCP.SessionOptions -Property @{
    Protocol   = [WinSCP.Protocol]::Sftp
    HostName   = 'host.name'
    UserName   = 'sftpusername'
    Password   = 'password'
    PortNumber = 6969
    SshHostKeyFingerprint = 'ssh-rsa 2048 d5:71:6a:0d:60:99:23:c4:63:18:55:54:5a:fb:79:05'
}

$session.Open($config)

$transferOptions = New-Object -TypeName WinSCP.TransferOptions -Property @{
    TransferMode = [WinSCP.TransferMode]::Binary
}

$session.Dispose()

Open in new window

I don't think that's actually a problem just try it on powershell on your computer and report back if you are having issues.

C:\Temp\Target /home/sftpuser04/Source

C:\Temp\Target  UPN

If that doesn't work you would need to use local addresses.

I am getting this error, do you know what I need to change on it.

Method invocation failed because [WinSCP.Session] does not contain a method named 'new'.

You need to run a New-Object for the session object instead of the new() method.
$session = New-Object WinSCP.Session

Open in new window

What version of the DLL do you have?  Could be older/missing a method.  The sample code works fine for me:

(Ignore the $sessuib part, that was a typo)
