Command Line Interface
The command-line interface lets you add Automated Transfers to scripts, or use the Windows Scheduler to schedule transfers. You can have multiple command lines running simultaneously.
Syntax: "Auto FTP Manager.exe" [-help]|[-?]|[-list]|[-l]|[<name-of-profile> [-silent]|[-s]]
Automated Transfer Profiles can be started from the Windows command line. The syntax is as follows:
"Auto FTP Manager.exe" <name-of-profile>
When this command is given, Auto FTP Manager will load in the background, execute the named profile, and exit. If the program is registered, the operation will be completely silent. The program's graphical window will not open.
Note: If a profile name contains space/s in it, use quotation marks around it. E.g.: If your profile name is My Office, use following command:
"Auto FTP Manager.exe" "My Office"
Note that if the Auto FTP Manager program directory is not in the PATH, you will need to type the entire path to the program, which by default is:
"C:\Program Files\DeskShare\ Auto FTP Manager \ Auto FTP Manager.exe".
Since the path and file name contain spaces, the quotation marks around them are required.
1. Help. "Auto FTP Manager.exe" -help | -?
Help will be provided for command line either by typing -help or -?.
2. List. "Auto FTP Manager.exe" -list | -l
List would display all the Automated Transfer Profiles.
3. Silent. "Auto FTP Manager.exe" <name-of-profile> -silent | -s
Executes the profile in silent mode. In silent mode no messages are displayed on the console.
Command-line use is not practical with the trial version of Auto FTP Manager, because the transfer will not take place until a user closes the Purchase Reminder window.
