Please can anyone help me?

Where do I type this once I'm logged into Winscp-

perl -e ‘print crypt(”MYPASSWORD”, “XX”);’

Thanks,

'perl' is the command that can generate an encrypted string. I don't believe you can perform this on a Windows PC. At least not without some additional hacking.

THIS SITE will do it all for you.

no no.. you need like a server.. winscp cant do it for you.. you can use something like putty, if you have a webserver with shell access.. then you would run the perl -e command.. so the process will actually happen somewhere else not no your computer or iPhone..
