This was asked many times in the forum. Please use search function. In short: it is not possible to execute commands that require user input with session without terminal emulation (WinSCP case).

OK, it might not be clear: It is restriction of the most of the servers (shells), it is not missing functionality of WinSCP. I cannot do anything with it.
