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.

This isn't saying one staff member isn't doing their job well.
If you are still unsure of what bin size to go for, then it is always best to
choose the larger option just in case. Organic waste
such as food scraps, for example, results in serious problems as
they produce methane which is a far more potent greenhouse emission than carbon dioxide.

i tried with filezilla using the ftp-over- SSH2 protocol, and that worked as well.

I've got some ideas for your blog you might
be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it improve
over time.

Hey there, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, amazing blog!
