Topic "Missing: Howto change user and password for shell"

Author Message



we got a FTP Server with a working Shell. If I want to duplicate a file on the server, WinSCP asks about a shell. I press ok and he tries to connect with a wrong user name.

I'm missing a shot explanation in the Guides or F.A.Q.

With regards, Rex75

Do you mean that you have to connect with different username to the shell that you are connected to the FTP server (well I suppose it is actually SFTP server)?
