Hi *,


was mentioned in this List some time ago, i installed, and tested
There are IMHO some hints to prefer WinScp over FileZilla.
a:) The Interface is more Win-Like. (see WsFTP)
    (This might not be very important.;-))
b:) Using of Public-Private-Key pairs seems impossible.
c:) The version of the underlying putty ssh Socket is not
    Documented. (And one should use >=0.53b due to Security

For uploading use SFTP, a very good client program for windows is
FileZilla from http://filezilla.sf.net. Best of all: it's freeware
and can also be used as standard ftp client. You may also want to
restrict access to the sftp (ssh) server based on ip address to get
maximum security.

winSCP http://winscp.vse.cz/eng/download.php is another free sftp client for Windows, though the program loses connection if ClientAliveInterval is set too low in sshd_config.

ClientAliveInterval 40
ClientAliveCountMax 3
