I am trying to copy a log file from an Amazon EC2 instance to my local machine (Windows 7). I am using
WinSCP438, which is able to connect to the remote (Amazon EC2) server instance. I am trying to access the instance as the "root" user in WinSCP using the method described here, but I am getting an error shown in the below image:
Why I am getting this error, and how do I copy the file from remote server (Amazon EC2) to my local machine?
Update: Output of commands, as requested:
