How to connect to Linux from Windows

Hi Folks,

I was looking into connecting from Windows to a Linux Server, After asking a coworker he advised me to use WinSCP. A free GUI tool to connect to Linux from windows.

WinSCP download link: http://winscp.net/eng/download.php

The tool is easy to install and use, once you install it it requires you to connect using your username/password and IP same as RDP in Windows.


You just need to write server IP,username and password.

Once you log in, you will have 2 panes in the Tool, one on the left is your local files and the one on the right the remote machine file systems.


Then you will be able to move files from the local to your remote sever.

Hope this helps.
