I added this to an old thread, but it wasn't immediately evident I had added a question.

I discovered WinSCP 4.0.0 Beta a couple of weeks ago and I love editing remotely using SCP and Notepad++!

I have an account at Hostmonster I am using it for. And I have an account at JaguarPC I can connect to with it.

But...

I have an account at JaguarPC where I cannot connect using SCP. Can you help me connect?

-I can connect using FTP (but editing and saving doesn't seem to work in FTP mode).
-JaguarPC tech support can connect to the account using WinSCP 3.7.6 or 4.0.0 beta and SCP after renaming .bashrc and .bash_profile
-I tried both version 4.0.0 Beta and 3.8.2 and can't connect to this one account from home or the office.

Here is a typical log:

First I would recommend you to try SFTP. Have you tried that? You may also check the server's log file to see why the server closes connection.
