Where are you trying to connect to? What error message do you get?
You may first try if you find it in list of common error messages.
Also this FAQ (or others) may give you some hint.

I've got the same problem. I read FAQ, but no answer found. Here is the problem:
I have an account on remote server, where I place my site. So, certainly, I have a login name and a password for access. I tried to connect to the server using WinSCP (through FTP). My hoster gave me an address for FTP connection, something like ftp://name@name.ru. I place it in "Host name" field, then place my login and password, then I try to login. A window appears, where I see a field for "Session password". What the password is it? And where can I get it?
Thank you.

P.S. Everything works properly through Mozilla, for example.

Make sure that you put only name.ru to Host name field.
