My linux server has a two level login procedure to get to admin level.

I can get WinSCP to login to first level but permissions to edit as admin is blocked.

How do I get WinSCP to admin privileges?

What kind of "two level login procedure" is that?

So you use sudo?

Did you read this?

When I log in via SSH I enter user name, then password. That gets me to user level. Then at $ prompt I enter su and at the next prompt enter second password and then I get to # prompt and I am at admin level.

So how do I get to admin level using those passwords in WinSPC?

Thank you.
