Re: Passive mode

Neighter SCP, nor SFTP has passive mode. Why do you ask?

But WinSCP is not FTP client. It is SCP and SFTP client. These protocols does not have passive mode, as there's no reason for this.

That's one reason why no one used it. No ftp support, no passive mode.

Putty is still the best. It's much smaller, less resources, can ssh, sftp, ftp, scp. And it runs on all operating systems. It supports heavy duty encryption options such as aes, triple des, etc.

No. It barely supports ftp. For a much more stable ftp client that doesn't have issues with deleting folders or kicks offline easily, I suggest smartftp or even putty. They both support passive mode.
