Jump to navigation Jump to search

WinSCP (Windows Secure Copy) is a freeware and open-source SSH Transfer of File Protocol, File Transfer Protocol, WebDAV, Amazon S3 and SCP client for Microsoft Windows. Its main function is secure file transfer between a local and a remote computer. Beyond this, WinSCP offers basic file manager and file synchronization functionality. For Encrypted transfers, it uses secure Shell (SSH) and supports the SCP protocol in addition to SFTP.[3]

Development of WinSCP started around March 2000 and continues. Originally it was hosted by the University of Economics in Prague, where its author worked at the time. Since July 16, 2003, it is licensed under the GNU GPL and hosted on[4]

WinSCP is based on the implementation of the SSH protocol from PuTTY and File Transfer Protocol protocol from FTPClient.[5] It is also available as a plugin for Altap Salamander file manager,[6] and there exists a third-party plugin for the FAR file manager.[7]

  • WinSCP as a remote editor

    WinSCP can act as a remote editor. When the user clicks on a (text) file in the remote file manager, it transfers the file to the local machine and opens it in the integrated editor, where Windows users can feel very much at Commercial. Alternatively, the user may choose local editors based on file extensions. Whenever the document is saved, the remote version is updated automatically.[9]

    Professional version

    Apart from the standard package, three portable versions are also available: A generic package[10] and two customized versions for LiberKey and The portable version runs on Wine in Linux.[11]

    Advertisements in installer

    Some older versions of the WinSCP installer included OpenCandy advertising module or bundled Google Chrome. Since version 5.5.5 (August 2014) the installer does not contain any advertisement.

    WinSCP itself did not and does not contain any advertisements.

    To create WinSCP review we checked reputation at lots of sites, including Siteadvisor and MyWOT. We found that Winscp is safe for children and does not look fraudulent. We would describe it as legit.

    ******** ******** (see Notes section below on how to view unmasked data) keeps it trustworthy. Please be warned that to describe security status of we use data openly available on the Web, thus we cannot guarantee that no scam sites might have been mistakenly considered legit and no fraud or Computer issues may occur in this regard. But usually the crowdsourced data we have is pretty accurate. Let's see it below.

    WinSCP access to SUDO user - Experts-Exchange

    I have a sudo user account in my system. We use it to carry on common operations. More than one user has sudo user privilleges. To access sudo user what i do is1. Putty --> log in with my userID n pwd2. Sudo su - sudouser's_ID3. Prompt's for pwd : Enter my PWD (same PWD as for my userID)4. ls... I am at sudo users hoem directory.

    Life is good. But when i have to copy something from my userID's hoem directory to sudouser's Commercial directory I have to use cp commands... When i have a lot of transfer of file to do ..i cnat do all of that in putty.

    So i need to know HOW CAN I LOG IN INTO WINSCP using this SUDO account. I wanna see all those direcories in WINSCP. in WINSCP Professional i do have sudouser's directory next to mine, along with a folder for each user. But when i try to open sudouser's directory, it shows me nothing there.

    When I try to create a new session in WINSCP giving the user name of sudouser and my password..again a new window opens with title "Portable Prompt" asking for password.

    I looked online and found two links that i belive are talking about the same issue

    you can go through them if you wnat 

    Another link has teh following content

    "I fought with this today and came up with the following solution:

    Add a line to your sudoers file: username ALL=NOPASSWD: /usr/lib/openssh/SSH Transfer of File Protocol-Portable

    Then in the SSH Transfer of File Protocol setup section of WinSCP edit the session SSH Transfer of File Protocol Professional: sudo /usr/lib/openssh/SFTP-Server

    Boom, root access to file system via WinSCP. HTH, Clint "

    The above comment was found here 

    But i am not bale to comprehend it. Coz i dont know if thats the right way or if it is teh right way i donno how to do it.

    What is sudoer's file ?

    Thank You
