blackriver Posted July 14, 2009 Share Posted July 14, 2009 Here's my situation: I have a Windows XP machine and I have to edit files on several remote Linux boxes. Due to my project's chosen IDE, I can't work directly on the remote machines using VIM or something similar. So, we use the IDE's built-in FTP which allows us to edit files on the remote servers. This is rather insecure, and the IDE doesn't support SFTP. How can do this securely? I was thinking of building an SSH tunnel (as explained on episode 416), but the IDE also doesn't support using a proxy. Also, it would be a pain in the butt to switch between servers, which happens a lot during the day. What else can I try? The most ideal solution would be to somehow mount the remote Linux dir to something local in Windows, so I can simply use the IDE's explorer to edit a "local" file (similar to Dropbox, for instance). I'm using Putty, Plink and Total Commander on my Windows machine so far. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
