GUI based SFTP programs that run in linux?
 
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.

thanks for the help.

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.

thank you.

i take it no one knows of any such animal, and is not willing to assist with this learning curve...

u can try the following

great thanks for the links.

yes i use winSCP for my windows clients to access sFTP to linux and that is great. im hopping one of those links will give me something like that for my RH/Whitebox systems too.

little help please...

I installed java from sun and then downloaded the unix vs of the sFTP program from your first link.

the instructions say to just type java -jar..... but i am getting this error:

Code:

[ray2@raylap ray2]$ java -jar secureftp.jar
bash: java: command not found
[ray2@raylap ray2]$ whereis java
java: /usr/share/java
[ray2@raylap ray2]$ su -
Password:
[root@raylap root]# java -jar secureftp.jar
-bash: java: command not found
[root@raylap root]#

so yes tried that as both normal user and as root.

To run Secure FTP from the jar file, do the following:

Windows or Mac OS X
Double-click on the jar file.
Unix
From a shell, type: java -jar secureftp.jar
so im a bit lost... thanks for the help.

not sure what that command does.
 
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.

well it is supposed to start the GUI sFTP program from what i understand...

Code:

[ray2@raylap ray2]$ /usr/share/java -jar secureftp.jar
bash: /usr/share/java: is a directory
[ray2@raylap ray2]$ cd /usr/share/java/
[ray2@raylap java]$ java -jar secureftp.jar
bash: java: command not found
[ray2@raylap java]$

but as you can see, even from that directory, it is still not a command...

i guess that app and its directions are just bonkerz in what they say.

oh well.

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.

I think Konqueror has sftp. Also gftp has it too.

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.

Well in theory this functionality is built into KDE and GNOME.

In KDE try going to fish://user@host/path, in GNOME try sftp:// .... gnomes version never worked too well for me though.

Lleb_KCir 08-20-2004 10:57 AM

i just want something simple that looks and runs a lot like cuteFTP or winSCP

http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/sc.../commander.gif

thats a simple SS of winSCP running on winXP. if you do not know the path to your desitnation how can you navigate...

with something like cuteFTP, and winSCP you do not need to know the exact path, you just need to know the computer, user/pw and then you can FIND what you need/want.

Well, just type: fish://user@host in the location bar of konqueror (assuming kde) then.

Lleb_KCir 08-20-2004 11:56 AM

gnome, what is fish?

WinSCP works OK in wine if you use native comctl32

I'm working on fixing the rebar problem it displays now. No promises though.
