sudo su issue

I'm trying to transfer files from my computer using WinSCP 5.7.6 SFTP to a SUSE Linux box. I have an initial user name and password that I use, but then have to do a sudo su. I tried copying the files and got access denied (error code 3). So I read the tutorial at https://winscp.net/eng/docs/faq_su and went into the advanced settings > environment > sftp. I've changed the sftp server to sudo /usr/lib64/ssh/sftp-server and have also tried sudo su -c /usr/lib64/ssh/sftp-server. I saved these settings. When I click login, it searches and connects to the host then prompts me for my password, but after I enter the password it goes back to the main screen where I clicked login to begin with. I'm sure that I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure it out.
