Before they "upgraded" us to Win10, I had a utility called WinSCP (FTP app) on my box. We use it to transfer files in SSIS packages.

After Win10, I had to request that my "special apps" be reinstalled. It turns out that I'm not supposed to have WinSCP on my machine, and that it can only be installed on database servers. So now, IA is freaking out, and I'm probably going to have to jump through absurd and pointless hoops to test a package that needs to download a file via FTP.

So now, I'm waiting for our dba guy to tell me how to modify our packages to run the copy on the server. I imaging that I'll have to have a UNC path, but what about credentials? And if they give me the credentials to run it remotely on the server, why would that be any different than just running it on my own machine - without credentials - like I've been doing for the last 4+ years?

I thought about just writing my own FTP retrieval script task, but they've probably blocked the port at the firewall, and if anyone tries to use it, security gestapo will descend on that person and escort them out of the building...

I hate this job.
