    ftp daemon?

    i am running a fc3 webserver. I have just recently got ssh working but I want to be able to upload files to the computer. Is there a way to do that with ssh?

    If not is there a ftp daemon? I didnt have one in my network services and so I figured I didnt install the package (if one exists) when I installed fc3.

    ssh has a built-in ftp server. sftp user@host.

    but wait. i am attempting to ssh from a windows machine and I am using putty. So I cant run sftp. is there a way to do it with putty?

    It would be a pain to have to reboot into linux everytime I wanted to update the site.

    just for everyones future reference putty comes with a program called PSFTP which is exactly like sftp but runs on a windows machine of course!
