Using SFTP for Remote File Transfer from Windows

Installing the WinSCP SFTP Client

For SFTP connections on Windows, the CAT recommends the use of WinSCP. To get WinSCP, you can download it from:

https://winscp.net/eng/download.php.

Alternatively to this guide, you can follow this guide to use SFTP from the command line without downloading a graphical client.

Connecting to a Remote Server

On opening the program, a login window will appear. Enter your username and password, and enter the name of the Linux system you are trying to transfer files from/to (for example, ada.cs.pdx.edu), as shown below.

If you wish to access your Windows N: drive, connect to winsftp.cecs.pdx.edu

 

 

Transferring Files

Once connected to a remote server, the local directory will be displayed in the left pane and remote directory will be displayed in the right pane. You can transfer files to and from the remote server using a drag and drop interface – simply drag something onto your desktop (or into a local directory, etc) to copy it to your computer.

To connect to a stash on a Linux system, press CTRL+o to bring up the Directory Panel. Replace the directory path with /stash/stashname.
