Author Message


I downloaded a trial version of WinSCP today. I have not been able to log on. My professor told me to use as the host and my email user name and password. I put all of that in, and this is what the box said:

Searching for host
Connecting to host
Using user name tjohns25
Authenticating with pre-entered password
Access denied

I checked my email account to make sure I was using the right password, and I was. What am I doing wrong? I have to post an assignment using this software by Wednesday at midnight.
You can reach me at
Thank you

You need to contact your professor to verify the username/password you have.
