good afternoon,

i use winscp on my laptop to connect to linux machines and it works great, and would like to continue using it.

what i need to do is connect to a windows tower to transfer files on occassion between home and work. i have winscp on my laptop and on my tower at work. i can connect and get to the password login, but cannot get past that (i am using the Administrator account to attempt to login.)

i have read some forums stating that the other work tower needs a ssh server. would winscp not work as a ssh server itself, or is this an independant application, and what works best with winscp - i do not want to stop using winscp.

thank you,

jat

WinSCP is only client application. If you want to setup SSH/SFTP server, try copSSH.
