I can use putty just fine, but when I try to use winscp to connect to my server, the program stops at "Starting the session" and just hangs there forever. I tried to login other servers just fine.

Any suggestion is really appreciated since Im a linux newbie.

Are you able to connect with any other client?

In WinSCP change the shell in advanced options to shell (type in). This fixed my issue connecting to Citrix NetScaler.
