Topic "Using WinSCP with Apache on local machine"

Author Message


I have apache and perl installed on my personal computer that is connected to a workgroup. I can't access the server using the Windows Command Shell, so I looked for a SSH program for Windows and found yours.

In the session window, I put the server name as apache and port 80 because that is the port set in my httpd.conf file. I didn't create a user name or password because it's behind a router firewall and is only going to be used locally for testing purposes. However, since I haven't entered a user name or password, I can't login and I can't get to the shell window to enter commands.

Can someone help me configure WinSCP with a local apache install (no remote access) so I can open a connection to apache and enter commands?

WinSCP is SSH client. Apache AFAIK does not "speak" SSH. Neither I know that it has any command interface. Unless you want to enter HTTP commands for some testing. For this get PuTTY and use "raw" protocol.
