Special Characters in Password (PuTTY)
hi there folks,
first of all i hope i got the right forum for my question. If not forgive me plz and accept my apology :)
My question regards PuTTy, or to be more concrete PsFTP.
TBH I dont even know if its a Unix - related question, a problem with PuTTY or a win command line failure...
I try to execute
in the windows command line which throws the error: "The System cannot find the file specified"
psftp.exe -bc -be -b mybatch -v -P 22 -pw $***<§*** -2 -i PRIVATEKEYfile user'at'host
If I remove the -pw Attribute everything works fine. (Though the manual entered password is not accepted... while i can connect via winscp without problems)
The problem is caused by the special characters in the password attribute, i tried already a lot like putting the password in single and double quotes, brackets etc without success. I asked google for escape sequences, too. but i didnt got any satisfying results.
Does anybody know a solution, without having to change the password?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
