Sorry, I do not have root access to any server, so I have no experiences with this :-(

seems like you are trying to get into your box thru ssh, normally you would enter as a regular users and the 'su' to root... but with winscp you can't just 'su' so you need to open up root ssh access on your box.

this is most likely in /etc/ssh/sshd_config.conf or something... there is an option that you need to enable "AllowRootAccess yes" which is no by default.

then restart your sshd (reboot your box or do it from console)

Hope this solves your problem

Usually you cannot SU with SCP nor SFTP.

Enrique,
Could be that you have root in /etc/ftpusers. This will preven root access via ftp.

Cheers

Neil.
