Topic "SUDO with Solaris & WinSCP?"

Author Message


Hello WinSCP Team,
now i must write you since i have tried many ways to get SUDO working.

I have SunOS 5.10, WinSCP 3.8.2 Build 330
I set the connection to SCP and connect with my username to the server. Now i start the terminal and see the screenshot ..


With putty it works well, no password must be entered.
It looks like everything is fine but he cant read/get the directory well?

thanks for helping me Very Happy

You cannot do this with WinSCP. BTW, what's your point? What do you want to do afterwards?
