Question Wincsp and Putty alternatives


Hello

I was using on Windows the Wincsp and Putty for my servers and i want to ask if any alternatives exist on Backtrack Linux (Ubuntu based) ...

Which is the best solution to replace those two for Linux?

Thank you

Right, the commands are sftp and ssh

Your question is a bit like asking for a Windows version of WINE, or a Linux version of Cygwin. sftp, scp, and ssh are native programs in Linux. They were born in Unix/Linux. WinSCP and Putty are GUI tools that allow you to access those protocols from a Windows environment.

I think you're just thinking about things backwards. You aren't looking for Linux replacements for WinSCP and Putty, you're looking for the originals that WinSCP and Putty are based on.


Just open a terminal, and run "sftp", "scp", or "ssh". You can use the man pages to see how to use them, but it should be pretty straight forward:
Code:
ssh user@host
Code:
sftp user@host
Code:
scp user@host:/path/to/remotefile localfile

or

scp localfile user@host:/path/to/remotefile
