Wired connection between Linux and Windows 7


Hi everyone.

I would need some help in sorting out my lack of knowledge.
I need to copy big amount of data between computers, PC Linux with no X, and laptop Windows 7. I managed to connect them with network cable, pings go thru, but not quite sure what to do next. Windows of course doesnt see anything. I assume I have to mount shares and most likely edit fstab. Data will be copied from laptop to PC, windows to linux, so it would be better if Id mount shares on windows and have access thru network places or something to the Linux machine.

Can you help ?

for a one off job, winscp probably the easiest solution.

Winscp does the job, but how about not involving ftp server ?

scp does not use the ftp protocol, it uses ssh, so there are no ftp servers involved.

As acid_kewpie said, for a one time transfer winscp is most likely going to be the fastest solution. To set up the Linux box as a shared drive that Windows can access you're going to need to install and configure SAMBA, which can take hours/days on its own depending on your experience level and familiarity with Windows networking.

Well, winscp does support ftp, so it's not a totally misguided question.

BUT, no, I would presume you would use scp, not ftp. and you'll already have scp running by default within the ssh server on the linux box.
