Hi mwdenko,

My guess is that you haven't saved the password in your SecureFX session.

If you connect using SecureFX and save the password in the session, do you get better results using SFXCL while SecureFX is closed?

I only suggest saving the password in the session because you are using FTPS and the alternative is to pass the password in plaintext on the command-line or try and configure mutual authentication if the server supports it. At least the password will be encrypted in the session.

If you are going to save passwords, it is also advisable to upgrade to the current official release which is 7.3 and soon to be 8.0. They use a different algorithm to encrypt the saved password than 7.2.

If you have the ability to use SFTP, you could use publickey authentication which wouldn't require saving a password.
