I'm trying to connect to my SSH to send a file for it using WinSCP, but when I try to connect what I got is this:

WinSCP Error

Remember that I'm using tcsh as my default shell, and I can't change it.

What I can do?

Have you tried a "standard" scp file transfer from the command line? Give that a try or alternatively, try WinSCP instead of filezilla. – EEAA Aug 5 '10 at 2:11
Of course. I've configured Ruby on Rails there before. – Nathan Campos Aug 5 '10 at 9:36

Try scp, or WinSCP if you are on Windows.

Hrm, sounds awfully familiar. – EEAA Aug 5 '10 at 3:00
Sorry Erik, didn't see your reference to winSCP. Guess it helps to read the entire comment... :D I did go the distance and add the links, though. – JakeRobinson Aug 5 '10 at 4:39
