Unable to use SFXCL with password having special characters

Environment: Windows 2008 Server R2


We are using VBS to transfer files to an SFTP server using SFXCL. The password has special characters such as "&" and "#". When this SFXCL command is fired using this password, it fails to connect. The error logged is "Hostname lookup failed. Format error, connection refused, or not implemented."

We tried escaping the special characters in the password by using hexadecimal equivalent. However, it did not help.

Note that this same password works through SecureFX client.

We also attempted using URL encoding function to send the password, and that did not help either.

We thus request your help to resolve this problem.

Thank you!!
