File Transfer without password

Is there anyway available in SAS to copy file from one server to another server without supplying the password?

Re: File Transfer without password

If you have to supply credentials to the server to access it, no.  Otherwise it si possible.  However without any information its impossible to say.

Re: File Transfer without password

If you have a network mount to the server, no password is necessary (as long as you have write permission on the share).

If a FTP server is configured to allow anonymous FTP, use filename ftp with "anonymous" as the user and your email as password.
