getting started with WinSCP

How do i start using this tool, i just heard about this tool a few ago and downloaded it, but i can't seem to get it going.
I have a smoothwall firewall box that i would like to upload some domain names to but i can't seem to do, so i need all the help i can get.

Thank You
Davfin

And what's the problem? Any error message? Or log file?

I have this same problem. I type in the name of my firewall, and user name and password, all other choices in WinSCP are default. The error is "Host Does not exist." I have ssh enabled in my Smoothwall, and I use port 222, which is the port used by Smoothwall. I have a valid user name and password. I tried with the name of my smoothwall and the IP address.

With what clients are you able to connect to your firewall? Can you try to connect with Putty?
