File Transfer & Windows 8.1

I want and need a better, faster interface for ftp and my blog server. Obvs needs to be encrypted. It seems that Windows 8.1 does not offer sftp natively but recommends WEBDAV. On my various clients I have multiple operating systems, but mainly Windows.

I had a quick poke around to see how to do this. Firstly I have an RTU for WISE-FTP through 1&1 which has great windows desktop integration but I usually use filezilla. (1and1 have moved away from WISE-FTP)

MS offer a One Drive cloud service as do Dropbox, but I want to use my 1and1 file system. (Perhaps the answer is wise ftp since that’s what they offer). Have Microsoft left this gap to enable third party products to fill it as part of non monopolistic behaviour, but surely doing the desktop integration requires the licensing of engineering rights and documentation.

Anyway Google doesn’t seem much help. Odd

I have for the moment decided to use filezilla with the –site-manager command line item. NB the — is what is used on windows as well as shell based command lines. I can find ways to go straight to my site but these require placing the password inside the shortcut.

ooOOOOoo

I have made this icon –

File Transfer

I need to revise file transfer over TCP/IP. This article consists of links on encryption, sftp man pages, restricting shell escapes, sshd, ssh keys, restarts and scp.

My 1st Apple Mac

My 1st Apple Mac

I bought a Mac Book Pro last week. 10th August 2009. I’ll probably write up some notes about how I get it to do a job of work. The first set of notes I need were the HTML editor. despite having already installed Open Office, which has an editor. This page is demised.
