I'm sure this question has been answered .... but I can't find a suitable post.
I've just installed WinSCP and I am trying to copy a .vmdk file from an ESX server to a drive on my desktop. I'm logged in as an admin, not root (I don't think that is possible) and I get the following message:
When on SCP Protocol:
Received error message from remote side: 'scp: gessap165-flat.vmdk: Permission denied'
When on SFTP:
Error code: 3
Error message from server: Permission denied
Request code: 3
