I can just guess, but I would guess that it can hardly work. WinSCP needs an unix-like shell for the Open terminal feature. I doubt freeSSHd provides one. Use Open in PuTTY function instead.
Client PC: Windows XP Pro SP2
Server PC: Windows XP Pro SP2
Client PC: WinSCP v4.1.6 Build (412)
Server PC: freeSSHd v1.2.1
From the WinSCP windows-type file explorer I select Open Terminal icon and I get a dialog box with the following messages:
Searching for host...
Connecting to host...
Using username "[username]"
Authenticating with pre-entered password
Starting the session
After about 15 seconds I get a dialog box that says "Host has not answered for more than 15 seconds. Still waiting [blah, blah, blah...] Warning ..." So I wait for several minutes and no response.
My question is 1; should a console be available in this environment? and 2; if so, where else could I look for possible resolution to this problem?
Thanks in advance,
