How can I use WinSCP with OpenSSH for Windows?

Using WinSCP with Windows SSH server based on OpenSSH, the best is to use SFTP protocol to connect to the server.


If you want to use SCP, set these options on SCP/Shell page of Advanced Site Settings dialog:

  • Shell: /bin/sh
  • Lookup user groups: off

You should also set Windows EOL (end-of-line) sequence on Environment page.
