Not sure if this will work, but you can try this as well:

> sftp -oPort=22 user\\@name@hostname

Notice, the double escape... one is for the shell and another for sftp.

Just an update to this issue...the script worked to get to the site, but we still had to manually put in the password. We couldn't get the script to continue after it called the .ssh file. The only resolutions we could find is to get the trading partner to change the @ symbol to something else, or to come to us to pick up the file.

Have you tried logging in without a password, with a key?

Create a key, e.g. with command ssh-keygen -t dsa. You'll be prompted for a passphrase.
That creates id_dsa (your secret key) and (your public key) in ~/.ssh.
Copy the .pub file to the remote host in your ~/.ssh/authorized_keys file. Create or append.
You may need to set the mode on authorized_keys to 0600.

Now when you log in you'll be prompted for the passphrase to decrypt your secret key.
If you don't want to be prompted everytime, install the keychain package and create a ~/.keychain directory.
