I am new to Linux. Currently I use SUSE 9.1 and SLES. I am am trying to use Putty's Psftp client to upload a folder. I know how to upload a file; however, I cannot seem to figure out how to upload an entire folder. Previously, I have used a SFTP GUI to do this before, which is easy. However, I am trying to learn more command line.

So...could you please give me advise on how to use Putty's Psftp "command line" to upload an entire folder.

Thanks in advance,

I don't know if psftp has way to do recursive operations or not. scp has -r (recursive) though. You could also use rsync, which IMHO is a better tool for the job as it only uploads files that have actually changed (or have been added) locally to the destination.
