SecureCRT & SecureFX with sudo?

I have been using WinSCP for quite some time now to edit system configuration files on linux servers. I have to connect to my servers with a non-priviledged user which is in a wheel group. I don't need to enter my password again to gain sudo rights.

To do that in one step with WinSCP, I connected to the server in file transfer mode, while using
"sudo -u root /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server"
at the same time (WinSCP offers an advanced config option to do that - the shell is set to 'sudo -s'). This is a really cool feature, as I can use my text editor to change configs and do not have to use vim or else. And I can browse directories explorer style, which is also nice.

Now that I bought the client package today, I fail to achieve the same goal with SecureCRT&SecureFX - what do I miss?
