Copy files from my PC to server


Was using FileZilla all this time but now I got to use Putty.

How do I copy file(s) from my WinXP PC to my Fedora server for which I have root access. - Actually I got to use su - in order to switch to root - this is the reason why I cant use FileZilla or WinSCP - because they wont run commands that require user input.

Thanks

use winSCP

1. Start your ssh daemon on the server
2. winSCP your file to your user account, as root should be disallowed ssh access
3. ssh to your server and move the file wherever you like

Alternatively, setup an FTP daemon on your Fedora server, connect with Filezilla to transfer the file. Then SSH to move the file wherever you like. anjanesh is right though, you shouldn't ssh as root...

Ah..Thanks
This is pretty tedious. Login in user, copy file and then login into ssh and swtich user to root and then move file internally.
Why isnt there an easier way out ?

Is this server on your local LAN? If so, just use Samba...
