Author Message


Hi, Will my network administrator be able to tell what files I am transferring to my machine or does winscp encrypt the packets very well?

It does encrypt the packets if you are using SSH or FTP over SSL. You will see a lock icon on WinSCP status bar.
Please read FAQ:

Your network administrator may see the files if he has control over the server.
