asked on

putty and winscp SSO.... possible?

Hi, I have tons of sessions on putty SSH client and I have exported to winscp using /tools/import TAB on winscp window, but what I want is, if possible, to connect from putty and open winscp with the same host and avoid put password again.

If with winscp it's not possible, is there another SFTP client available to work with putty sessions using SSO?

Thanks.

" ... connect from PuTTY and open WinSCP ..."

That's not possible, afaik, but the opposite direction is.

Open a WinSCP session first, then go to "Commands" -> "Open in PuTTY".

You'll get a shell session on the same server in a PuTTY client. No need to re-enter the password.

If there's a saved PuTTY session with the same name as the WinSCP session then this session's configuration will be used.

You can also set up WinSCP to automatically open new sessions in PuTTY.
http://winscp.net/eng/docs/ui_pref_integration_app

Just tick "Automatically open new sessions in PuTTY", then save the current WinSCP session.
From now on a PuTTY session will open every time you start the respective WinSCP session.

hey wmp!! how are you ;)

Yes, I have done that and works fine, but I'm looking for the opposite, open a putty session and if I need to share files open the sftp client without password...
