are there any? if not could someone please educate me on how to use sftp /scp to copy/push files between my 2 linux boxes.
i have samba setup on one of them (RH9, its my laptop), but i dont know how to make linux talk to a samba share. i understand how to navigate around via ssh, but no clue how to push/pull files from the laptop to my desktop. i am running Whitebox 3 on the desktop.
just to add, i really like the way winSCP works in windows. its very simular to cuteFTP so it makes it very simple to use. that is the kind of program i am looking for. that or just an education on how to better utilize the CLI for ssh/sftp/scp.
What is that command supposed to accomplish.
try changing to the directory that the command is in and then executing it.
you where on the right track with the whereis command, but remember if a command isnt in your path u either have to execute it from its home directory or type the entire path.
First thing I would do is navigate to /usr/share and find out if java is a directory. Then go into that directory and go into bin. The program java is in there. You can add more paths to search in your PATH environment variable.
thanks for the help, but after 3 differnt programs all NOT working according to their setup instructions i think im done with trying to learn sFTP for linux. at least the damn GUI of windows works straight out of the double clicky install. nothing to configure beyound answering some simple basic questions.
do i want it to look like A, or look like B. done it works.
