Getting files off web server
I'm used to using regular FTP in windows to work on websites. I use dreamweaver as my primary tool and it has FTP built into it. However I need to work on another site now that does not use FTP. I have been instructed to use PUTTY and am able to connect to the server and view the files and edit them with VI, however I am not certain what is the most efficient way to upload/download thee files to my PC so I can work on them and them upload them again. Is this within putty? Is there a more efficient alternative you can recommend? Obviously I'm a linux newbie.
