Yeah I fianlly got it to work. The problem was that it had to be in the tmp folder. I had created a folder named tmp in the root directory, but I had to use the the actuall tmp folder. Did that and it work just fine. Such a simple thing to. I just didn't realize that there was a higher directory than the root folder since thats what WinSCP goes t by default. Ugh, and I ran such a long thread over such a simple problem. So sorry. Thank you guys so much for all your help.

Hmmm, there isn't a "higher directory" than /, and root already has a /tmp.

This is why showing your exact command and exact output (via copy/paste) is so much more useful than description.
