Topic "Login as root"

Hello,

I'm used to login as root on a server by login in putty as a normal user and then use the command

Code:
ssh -l root server.tld


Somebody told me it should be possible to login this way using WinSCP. However, I don't succeed. If I test this in the terminal, I get:

Code:
error code 255:
Pseudo-terminal will not be allocated because stdin is not a terminal.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied, please try again.
Permission denied (publickey,password,keyboard-interactive).

I get simular errors while trying the su-command.

Can anybody help me? Tnx!
