Integrated text editor. Support for SSH password, keyboard-interactive, public key and Kerberos (GSS) authentication. Windows Explorer-like and Norton Commander-like interfaces.

  • U3 support
  • All common operations with files
  • Support for SFTP and SCP protocols over SSH-1 and SSH-2 and plain old FTP protocol
  • Batch file scripting and command-line interface
  • Directory synchronization in several semi or fully automatic ways
  • Integrated text editor
  • Graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Translated into several languages
  • Integration with Windows (drag&drop, URL, shortcut icons)
  • Explorer and Commander interfaces
  • Optionally stores session information
  • Support for SSH password, keyboard-interactive, public key and Kerberos (GSS) authentication
  • Integrates with Pageant (PuTTY authentication agent) for full support of public key authentication with SSH

The key to WinSCP is the fact that it supports both SFTP and SCP protocols over SSH-1 and SSH-2. Of course, it also supports normal FTP protocols too. It also features full SSH support and has entirely configurable security and encryption options. A particularly nice addition is the Session Saving option.
