    Well I'm not too good at this but basically Winscp allows you to access all of the files on your touch, applications and stuff like that. Winscp would be an FTP client. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol, and yes it is a way to access your iPod Touch files...

    Well, essentially, WinSCP is an application that is used to transfer files to your iPod touch (in this case) and it does this by using SFTP (secure file transfer protocol). SFTP is based on FTP and is more secure to use than FTP. I won't go into details, but that's essentially what it does.
