    Hello,

    I'm trying to use the Terminal feature in WinSCP. When i click Terminal i get this message:

    "current SFTP-3 session does not support command you request. Separate shell session may be opened to process the command. Do you want to open seperate shell session?"

    "Note:The server must provide unix-like shell and the shell must use same path syntax as current SFTP-3 session"

    When i click Ok, it says "Invalid Access to Memory"

    Please help me

    You connected to your iPod using SFTP. You need to connect to it using SCP.

    The terminal feature of WinSCP sucks though, you can only send a single command to it at a time. If you want shell access, I'd recommend you use PuTTY.
