Dec 13, 2021 Download FileZilla Server 0.9.60.2 for Windows. We need your support! Both server and client support FTP and FTPS, while the client can, in addition, connect to SFTP servers. Mar 08, 2017 Download Files from SFTP Use get command to download file from sftp server to local system drive. Use lcd to change location of local download folder. Below command will download remotefile.txt from remote system to local system. Sftp get remotefile.txt To download files and folders recursively use -r switch with get command.

I need to download files from SFTP server to a local machine using a PowerShell script.

  1. Download Files from SFTP Use get command to download file from sftp server to local system drive. Use lcd to change location of local download folder. Below command will download remotefile.txt from remote system to local system. Sftp get remotefile.txt To download files and folders recursively use -r switch with get command.
  2. In the top drop down menu, choose SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) In Server, enter the address of the server you want to connect with (e.g. Rita.cecs.pdx.edu, linux.cs.pdx.edu, winsftp.cecs.pdx.edu, etc) Keep the port number at 22. Enter your MCECS login for the username and password. Click Connect, and you should see your Linux account file.

The API/library that will be used for the download needs to be able to monitor results of the transfer, log the transfer, and also to archive/move the downloaded files.

Thanks in advance.

There's no SFTP support in PowerShell or .NET framework. So you have to use an external SFTP library.

One possibility (which you have tagged yourself in your question) is WinSCP .NET assembly. There's an article on using WinSCP from PowerShell.

There's even a code example in PowerShell for SFTP download:

WinSCP GUI can even generate a PowerShell SFTP download code, like the one above, for your specific session settings and transfer options:

  • Login to your server with WinSCP GUI;
  • Select the files for download in the remote file panel;
  • Navigate to the target directory in the local file panel;
  • Invoke the Download command;

Ssh File Transfer Protocol

  • On the Transfer options dialog, go to Transfer Settings > Generate Code;
  • On the Generate transfer code dialog, select the .NET assembly code tab;Choose PowerShell language.
