I want to use WinSCP to connect to the Raspberry Pi standard SFTP server. I also need to have root access. How can I do this without logging in as root (using sudo)?
This is easy. By default the stfp-server of a Raspberry Pi is located at: /usr/lib/sftp-server, so we need to get WinSCP to execute it with sudo.
- Go to your WinSCP profile (Session > Sites > Site Manager)
- Click on Edit > Advanced... > Environment > SFTP
sudo su -c /usr/lib/sftp-serverat "SFTP Server"
- Save and connect
