hello all.

is it possible to change user while in winscp ?

ex: I need to access files from my webserver, but I disable root login on port 22, so I always have to ssh as a user, su to root, copie files from the web directory to my own directory, then run winscp and there I can download the files. I would prefert to winscp as a user, then su to root ans been able to navigate through all my system

any help very much welcom
