Transfer Files Across Your Network from Windows to a Raspberry Pi

... or any Linux setup!

So you've setup your Pi, you've got a static IP address and you can even VNC into the desktop (if not check out my Raspberry Pi Beginners Guide). But what if you want an easy way to transfer files from your Windows PC to your Pi somewhere else on the network? With Graphical User Interface to? No problem, that's easy.

First of all enable the ssh server using the Pi Config Tool (or follow this guide). This allows you to connect remotely to a Terminal Session on your Pi, just connect to the static IP Address using a tool such as PuTTY.

But it also allows you to use the brilliant WinSCP (Windows Secure CoPy) to have an explorer like interface on your Windows PC to the your Pi. Again just use your static IP Address, Username and Password as you did for VNC in the Beginners Guide.

Remember, when connecting to PuTTY or WinSCP, you don't need the port (e.g. :1) at the end of the connection IP Address.

WinSCP

That's it! Easy to setup and use, you just need the Raspberry Pi IP Address, Username and Password.

First of all I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I'd like
to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
I've had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to
15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure
out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thank you!

An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.

I do think that you need to write more on this issue,
it might not be a taboo subject but generally people do not talk about these topics.

To the next! Many thanks!!

locating it but, I'd like to shoot you an e-mail. I've got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing.
Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.
