Hi, if I understand right the "File Transfer" mode that can be used in VNC is FTP based.
I tried connecting to a few VNC servers I have on port 5900 using WinSCP and nothing worked, but it did attempt it...

Below are some error messages I received on different server versions.
Would it be possible to implement support for the FTP part of the RFB protocol in WinSCP?

Server1: (UltraVNC v1.0.2)

Server does not send proper UTF-8, falling back to local charset
Connection failed.
RFB 003.004


Server2: (TightVNC v2.0.2)

Connection failed.
RFB 003.008

wel-jumbo2: (UltraVNC v1.0.2)

Connection failed.
RFB 003.006

I haven't been able to find any spec on that in reasonable time. And to be honest, there are many more-widely used transfer protocols that WinSCP does not support yet...
