WinSCP not connecting – SOLVED



  • I need to transfer some files over to my pfSense box, but WinSCP is giving me connection errors:

    Received too large (170535466 B) SFTP packet.  Max supported packet size is 102400 B.
    The error is typically caused by message printed from startup script (like .profile).  The message may start with "0x0A2A2A2A".
    Cannot initialize SFTP protocal.  Is the host running a SFTP server?

    I can get through the login portion of the connection, but then I get the error above.

  • Connect using root and not the web admin user. (same passwd)

    Thank you so much.  Works like a charm.  ;D
