Is it possible to connect to a running docker container with Winscp?

I am able to connect to host on which docker system runs. But I cannot find out how to connecting to the docker directly.
Does anyone know what I need to adjust in WinSCP added to connect?
Sure, I am able to open by putty, but I want to connect by WinSCP.

Best Regards

If you are able to connect with PuTTY, I do not see what should prevent you from connecting with WinSCP. Unless you first connect to the host with PuTTY; and then you connect to the docker machine from the host shell.

Show us PuTTY and WinSCP logs for comparison.
