Issue with moving .ovpn file to client

I had created an OpenVPN container on an unprivileged Debian container with LXC through a guide that was listed on this site. After the installation, I tried to import the client file on Windows using WinSCP. I put in the IP address of the server along with the username and password but I keep getting an access denied error asking for my password again. I keep inputting the password for the server but it is not accepting it. Is there anything that could be causing this issue?
