Network share access from WinSCP

WinSCP lets use create a server with SFTP, S3, SCP protocols. But I do not see the simple SMB or NFS protocol in the list. Is this in the pipeline of features to be introduced?

Re: Network share access from WinSCP

You can access network share using any tool/filemanager you want, including plain Windows File Explorer. If you want to use WinSCP, just because you like its GUI :), then you can use local filemanager mode of WinSCP 6.0 and navigate one of the file panels to the SMB path (\\server\path).
See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/task_file_management

What I mean is, you can create a new Session to a remote SFTP or SCP server but not to a remote NAS server. I am able to run a script to transfer data to a Session named my_new_server:
winscp ec2-user@my_new_server /script=D:\datatransfer.winscp /log=D:\winscp.log /loglevel=-1
But this session has to be SFTP/SCP/S3. The session cannot be NAS.

This feature is needed in WinSCP.

I know. That's what I responded to above.

Samba (SMB) is "Network drive" to Windows. So it can be browsed in the "local" panel. You do not need to open any session to access SMB.
