ERROR "Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (BASH is recommended)"

Hi All,

I am getting the above error message when i am trying to login to SCP.

Any idea what might have gone wrong?

Other connection works well.

Do you have any reason to use SCP instead of SFTP?

If you really need SCP, we need a log file to help you, as you got suggested when posting this message, and as is also suggested in documentation of this error message:

I had something similar
When I logged on normally via ssh I had a script running as part of the .profile that was giving me a load of output. This was causing winscp to fail.
I disabled the script and I was ok again
