Re: Connect via another server

WinSCP cannot respond to the custom interactive menu that your intermediate server presents.

Connect via another server

Dear all,

The server to which I'm trying to connect uses a whitelist of IP addresses. When I'm not on a whitelisted IP I connect with the terminal via a login server, called "doornode". After logging in to the doornode I get a interactive menu to choose which server I want to connect to, and after choosing I'm automatically redirected (I have to authenticate again). Obviously this doesn't work with WinSCP, so I can only connect with the terminal which makes exchanging files a hassle. Is there a way to setup a session which allows me to do file exchange? It tried the tunneling approach described here:, but that didn't work. When trying to connect through the tunnel the target server still seems to reject me.

Thanks & cheers,
