Newbie trying to learn


One hour ago I had never heard of this product, now by this evening I have to have a program running in production that will use this product to send some of our files from my PC over to a Unix server.
I have been sent a command line that I am supposed to use, and jsut downloaded WINSCP. That's as good as it gets so far.

When I try to run WINSCP on my PC I get a box requesting basic username/password and host name informaiton. I put all this in and hit enter. I get 'Searching for Host" for a few seconds and then "Network Error Connection timed out" message. I know this is all very vague, but considering the time crunch I am under, I am just trying to get this done and will learn more about it later. Any suggestions?

The version I downloaded in Version 3.61 build 221.

You may need to specify proxy on Proxy tab of login dialog, if there is some between you and the server.
