I get this error:
Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (Bash is recommended).

Connection has been unexpectedly closed. Server sent command exit status 0.

I then noticed my user was an FTP user and did not have shell access. This took me a while to figure out and I am reporting this here for users in the future. I may still have issues because I have to wait until shell access is granted before I can test this again.

My problem was that the user password on linux machine expired (I have it set up to expire on 90 days) and the shell didn't start.

prikryl this answer doesnt help at all since there simply IS NO ERROR IN THE LOGs.
you could as well write "I dont have a clue about this error, it just happens randomly on some machines and I'm too freakin lazy to fix it, or even find out the true reason."

thanks......

For:
Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (BASH is recommended).

I found that our problem was the user was using SCP and sudo, and that sshd required a TTY in order to perform this action.

you probably in the clish mode thats why its not letting you download in the bash.
login in to the GW under user management > users > unlock the screen from above
for example if you use admin account double click the admin there you can change the shell to /bin/bash

Now goto your winscp and download...!!

There we go..!!
