Preserve Extended File attributes when copying file to linux host using SCP

Hi all
I add some attributes(Extended file attributes) to my files which i want to have them in my destination host.
It seems WinSCP does not preserve them during transfer.
Is there any option in GUI to tell WinSCP copy that attributes too?
I'm using the WinSCP 5.7.6.

Thanks in advance

What attributes specifically?

What protocol are you using?

I'm using SCP Protocol.
It's Customized Extended attributes which i add to my files. its not NTFS standard attributes.
Is there any chance that WINSCP read those attributes before sending them to linux host and add them to the same file in XFS(add to its corresponding inode)?

Thanks

Sorry, it's unlikely.

We are not improving SCP protocol anymore, it's deprecated. And I do not think that setting NTFS attributes is possible with FTP or SFTP.
