Connecting to a Windows NT Server

Hi,

WinSCP was recommended to me by a university professor and I must admit, it looks very nice! I am a long time WS_FTP user and would like to make the transition, but I am having some problems.

I am able to connect without any problems to the Unix server at my university. However, when I try to connect to my Windows NT host, the connection is refused on Port 21 and times out on Port 22 (the port my server recommend I use). It does so both on the host name style ftp.name.com and www.name.com

I just wanted to know if there was anything I was missing?

Re: Connecting to a Windows NT Server

WinSCP is SCP/SFTP (over secure SSH protocol) client. Not FTP client. You cannot connect to port 21 (FTP) with it. Your NT server probably does not have SSH server (port 22). You may get OpenSSH for Windows for free.
