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.

Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic
but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
site? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had
problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.

I would be awesome if you could point me in the
direction of a good platform.

Hi would you mind letting me know which hosting company you're utilizing?

I've loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers
and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a honest price?
Thank you, I appreciate it!
