WinSCP is an open-source freeware SFTP client, FTP client, WebDAV client, and SCP client. Its primary function is to protect file transfer between a local and a remote computer, using SSH (Secure Shell).

Beyond these primary features, WinSCP offers scripting and primary file manager performance. The application additionally allows you to rename files and folders, create new folders, and change the properties of files and folders.

One of two selectable program interfaces allows users to handle files even on a local computer. Most operations could be completed recursively for files in folders.

WinSCP can also be available as a plugin to 2 file managers, FAR and Servant Salamander.

Server Requirements

Using WinSCP, you may connect to an SSH (Secure Shell) server with SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) or SCP (Secure Copy Protocol) service, to an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server, or HTTP server with WebDAV service.SFTP is a standard part of the SSH-2 package. SCP is a standard part of the SSH-1 package. You may run each protocol on the latter SSH version. WinSCP supports each SSH-1 and SSH-2. For authentication, you may use the user name and password or public key (RSA or DSA). Other authorization types include TIS, Cryptocard, Keyboard-interactive, and Kerberos. For FTP, each basic unencrypted variant and FTPS are supported. Compressed transfers (Zlib) usually are not supported.

For WebDAV, each basic unencrypted variant and WebDAV are supported. Compressed transfers (Zlib) usually are not supported.

SFTP Requirements

For SFTP, the only requirement beyond the server requirements above is to run SFTP on the server. It is greatest to run it as an SSH-2 subsystem. If you choose SFTP-only on the Login dialog and the SFTP subsystem will not be found, WinSCP will attempt to find the SFTP server in some common directories (/usr/lib/sftp-server, /usr/local/lib/sftp-server, etc.). This means, it’s possible to use SFTP even with SSH-1, which does not support subsystems.
