Trick: How to copy files into Linux from Windows Machine

In Unix, you can use SCP (the scp command) to securely copy files and directories between remote hosts without starting an FTP session or logging into the remote systems explicitly. The scp command uses SSH to transfer data, so it requires a password or passphrase for authentication. Unlike rcp or FTP, scp encrypts both the file and any passwords exchanged so that anyone snooping on the network cannot view them.

Once logged in, go to File -> SSH SCP

Browse to the file you wish to send from the “From:” file, and type the address location on the “To:” field you wish to save the file to on the Linux box. And click Send.
