I thought I'd simply reply to this thread instead of opening a brand new one on a similar issue.
I have IPCop (a linux based server/router/proxy Operating system) installed on a gateway PC that regulates network traffic on my home network with default configurations. Now According to IPCop's official site, I am supposed to use WinSCP to transfer files to the IPcop box from my admin workstation. It did not mention anything about turning any service on/off on IPcop box. Keep in mind that both boxes (ipcop and admin ws) are visible on the same subnet. I can ping from admin ws to Ipcop and vice versa
When I connect, I use IPcop's root password and port 22 (default). It comes back with Network error: Connection refused. Note also that I am unable to connect to the IPcop box with Putty either, same error message, just so you know.
I can post the log when I get home if you like.
1. You must create rule for admin, and put in the SSH protocol to use port 222 in your IPCop.
2. Giving allow to access using ip address between your ipcop and your pc (only act as admin).
3. Set again on your WinSCP but using port 222 and logon username and password root.
