sftp is a program that allows you to transfer files between two machines, similarly to WinSCP. However, unlike WinSCP, it is a command-line program (i.e. it does not have a graphical interface with menus, etc.). Here is how you use sftp to transfer files from a lab machine to rynite and the other way around:
cdcommand to switch to this directory.
sftp ryniteat the command prompt, type in your password when asked
cd public_htmlto get to your public_html directory. If you want to get to a subdirectory of public_html, say, lab3, you can type in
cd public_html/lab3instead. To create a new directory, type
mkdir lab3(or any name you want to give to the new directory), followed by
cd lab3to get into the new directory.
put filename(where you replace filename by the actual file name).
|pwd||shows your current directory on rynite|
|lpwd||shows your current directory on the lab machine|
changes your current directory on rynite (
changes your current directory on the lab machine (
|ls||shows your files in the current directory on rynite|
|lls||shows your files in the current directory on the lab machine|
|quit or exit||exits sftp|
