using winscp to connect from your host OS to your virtual OS in virtualbox

I am currently using virtualbox with fedora 18 in it. My host OS is windows 7. How can i use winscp in windows 7 to connect/edit files in my host OS (i.e. Windows 7).

You haven't mentioned your problem. Are you facing any error or you do not know the process?
Are you bounded to use winscp?
You can use share method to update files from host OS or from Guest OS.

You may want to have a look at the "host only" network adapter in virtualbox.
