winSCP to fedora 17


I just changed my ubuntu 32 bit box to a fedora 17 64 bit box. They wanted me to change to fedora at work.

Anyhow i can ssh from my windows box to the fedora box with cygwin. However i cannot transfer and files using winSCP.

before installing i gziped alot of files and transferred them to by windows box.
I can't transfer them back, and when i put them on a falsh drive and tried to put themon the desktop of my new fedora box, it will not let me.

anyone else have issues like this with fedora 17 64 bit?

if you can ssh to the F17 box via cygwin, then can you not use scp from the cygwin terminal as well? Perhaps you want to use WinSCP ultimately, but you could try scp from the cmd line first, just to see if that works.

note: in cygwin, you can chdir to a mounted drive in Windows - even your flash drive, e.g.:

Code:
cd /cygdrive/e/somedir/
scp *.gz <fedora_17_ip_address>:/tmp
