Dunno winscp, but, when you use putty, you are "inside" the machine you logged in, so you have to use what is inside. Emacs and vi are the most used editors, so they should be included in you linux. Emacs is easier. You only have to know ctrl+x followed by ctrl+s is save. Ctrl+x followed by ctrl+c is quit.
