I'm sure it would be a great contribution to the community if someone would implement PUTTY Far Plugin and may be an experienced winscp team could do it better than most.
(I wonder if it possible with SCP protocol to interact with server)
What functionality would you expect from such plugin?
Do you known that you can execute remote commands from FAR command line?
sudo chown some_user some_file
su -l some_user
OK, so what about running PLink from the FAR console window?
Plink (PuTTY Link) is a command-line connection tool similar to UNIX ssh. It is mostly used for automated operations, such as making CVS access a repository on a remote server.
Plink is probably not what you want if you want to run an interactive session in a console window.
That's nothing about WinSCP plugin. Just that you can start plink console terminal from FAR window. Or maybe you can replace putty with plink in WinSCP configuration so that plugin's Open in PuTTY command starts plink.I would be very grateful if you could describe in details how one can make WinSCP plugin to interact with server using Plink? Many users would love to have interactive winscp plugin and you might help many of us. There are quite a few tasks that involve keyboard interactions.... for which one would need to run Putty, and that is the main pitfall of winscp plugin (it just freezes)
