using winscp with openssh for windows from lexa.mckenna.edu

hi,

I had problems to get winscp to connect to the windows version of openssh provided on <invalid link removed> by Michael Johnson (I'm using the latest server version 3.6.1p1-1.)

The connection was cancelled by WinSCP because the server does not provide the command "pwd".

I figured out that setting the path to the shell to "/bin/sh" solves this problem, so WinSCP is working, but the groups can not be determind because there is no command "groups". "unalias" is also missing.

My question is: Can I use WinSCP besides those limitations or am I going to run into further problems?

Any help is appriciated. Thanks!

I will ask the same questions to Michael Johnson, who assembles openssh for windows from cygwin.

Regards
Henning Pingel

WinSCP works with OpenSSH for Windows (until recenly it was provided by NetworkSimplicity). Please read FAQ.
