Hi

I'm trying to copy some files to a vMA VM with FastSCP and though i can connect and browse the vMA i can't copy any files to it. I can copy to the very top level bit no where else.

I've tried setting "Elevae account to rrot" and adding the password for vi-admin but no joy. The only option to "paste" is the top level.

I want to copy the PCNS install to /home/vi-admin  and will run the install from there.

I'm non-unix so pse don't assume knowledge with your answers, make them idiotproof!

Cheers

On the vMA 5, the root account has been disabled, instead, the vi-admin account can perform the administrative operations.

this assumes you know the password for the vi-admin account.

when using the vi-admin and password for the account, you should be able to copy files to the /home/vi-admin folder, using WinSCP.

this is the only location you should be able to copy files to using the vi-admin account.
