Hi again!
I need an SSH and SCP program for some of my school projects. What they told us to use was WinSCP. Can I use some other program - native linux - and what would it be?

I had to look up WinSCP to see what it was...;)

Would ssh do what you need to do. I can transfer files in dual pane like a ftp program and a lot more. See the link in my sig below and look at the screen shot at the bottom of the How To page for SSH FreeNX DD-WRT.

For the dual panel krusader or the How To: Nautilus Dual Panel Karmic/Juanty also in my sig

Try the Places Menu/Connect to Server...

I believe if you choose the ssh service-type option, you will able to mount the server as a disk and then use nautilus instead of a fugly gui like winscp.

Kubuntu probably has something similar.

That would be krusader

Tranferring files using a GUI (Graphical User Interface) like nautilus or krusader

Nautilus (Ubuntu)
Places > Connect to server
Service Type: SSH (or FTP, Public FTP, Windows Share, WebDAV, Secure WebDAV)
Server: IP Address of the server
Port: The port you set the server to
Folder: /home/<your-user-name-on-the-server>/

Click on Connect

krusader (Kubuntu)
Tools > New Net Connection
Protocol: fish:// (other options available)
Host: IP Address of the server
Port: The port you set the server to
Username: Your username on the host computer
Password: Your password on the host computer

Click on Connect

I'm not sure how or if it can be done with Konqueror

Thank you for answers! The Connect to Server option works, sort of... I just don't recognize the view I get... Typical windows convert I suppose: "This doesn't look familiar...":P
I'll see to the other option now.

You can install krusader with

sudo apt-get install krusader
then it will be in
Applications > Accessories > Krusader
Krusader looks a lot like Total Commander

When I used Windows, I loved PuTTY. I don't use it any more because I just use the ssh command, but it is available in the repos: putty (apt://putty).

If you're using nautilus, you can also type

ssh://user@ip.address:port/
in the address bar.
The user@ is unnecessary if it's the same on server and local machine.

The package sshfs is what I prefer for GUI /w ssh.


To mount the remote filesystem

sshfs -p <port number here> externalIPaddress.com:/directory/of/folder/on/remote/machine /home/username/folder_remote_system_will_reside_in

To unmount:

fusermount -u /home/username/folder_remote_system_will_reside_in

If you are uncomfortable with sshfs and Nautilus, try gFTP.
