If you are using something like "crypt" to encrypt it, I don't think there is a way in NT... Maybe you can find some third party application that will...

Also, why are you encrypting the file, just to transfer and decrypt? What kind of file is it? There are secure transfer alternatives to protocols like FTP.

But we need to do this from scripts only.
