Can WinSCP transfer files to & from VMware 4.1?

I use putty to log into my VMware 4.1 hosts but was wondering that since WinSCP uses the same port as putty, will WinSCP connect?

I tried it using V5.0.2 Build 1456 and I get the error:

Cannot initialize SFTP protocol. Is the host running a SFTP server?

I assume I have to initialise SFTP on the VMWare host- how do I do that?

More clients can connect to the same port.

What SSH software are you running on the host? Can you post a session log file?

The host is a VMware ESXi 4.1 host and I'm not sure where the session log files are stored as I'm not a Linux guru.

I do not think VMware has session log files!?

I've meant WinSCP session log.
