WinSCP Logo

WinSCP is a convenient way to download and upload files to VMware datastores. To connect with WinSCP you have to enable SSH on your VMware host (it is disabled by default):

  • Login to your VMware host locally
    VMware ESXi 5.5.0

  • Press F2 to Customize System
    F2 - Customize System / View Logs
  • Provide root password
    Provide VMware root password
  • Navigate to Troubleshooting Options > Enable SSH and press Enter
    VMware - Enable SSH

Now you should be able to connect with WinSCP. Don't forget to disable SSH when you finish all file transfers.
