No SFTP on Nexx Wt3020 with OpenWrt 18.06.2

Hi guys,
I try o connect in SFTP to my Nexx Wt3020 with OpenWrt 18.06.2 but nothing!
I try in Linux and Windows with SCPWin but alway error, there aren't problem with the SSH I can connect without problem.

I do in SSH " opkg install openssh-sftp-server" and, on my Ubuntu PC, do "sftp://root@" but the sistem always reply "File or directory don't exist"

Specify the username explicitly.

I do the command "sftp://root@"

Ok thaks I'm in but I need something with a grafic interfaces, it's possible?

If you can connect through the CLI, then this might be a problem with the GUI.

I try with Filezilla but always the same problem. A program Like WinSCP?

opkg update
opkg --force-reinstall install dropbear openssh-sftp-server
/etc/init.d/dropbear restart
netstat -l -n -p | grep -e dropbear

If this doesn't help, try to reboot the router and PC.

All works now, thanks. But a program like WinSCP for LINUX exist??

On linux almost any file manager supports sftp like nautilus, thunar, etc. There is no need of a special program.

what I must write for use NAUTILUS?

There is "connect to..." menu in nautilus. You can write there "sftp://root@"
