I am new to WINSCP and when trying to logon am asked for a session password. The only password I have is for the user - where does the session password come from?

I have tried that. Is there a setting that I may have inadvertently changed that would cause this?

This should work. Be sure that the logging user account must be a member of root or administrators group.

Did you remember to sync up the passwords between Windows and your SSH server? This happened to me; after creating a new user, you must log in to Cygwin and issue the command

mkpasswd -l -u your_username >>/etc/passwd
