Hi

I need to learn how to upload files to a folder on my a linux server from my desktop. I tried wget command but that only works for files hosted somehere. I have all the files on my computer and it takes very long to do that through FTP

Thanks in advance

Do you have physical access to the Linux box and a flash drive? That would be the quick and easy way. Next step would be to copy to a CD or DVD.

You can also use SSH.

If you're trying to move a bunch of small files via FTP zip them into a single large file. It takes one second per file for most FTPs, that will eliminate that delay.

No matter what kind of client or server you use it will involve TCP/IP and use just about the same amount of time. It's not the client or server but the size of the pipe that will matter here. Follow my advice about the small files if you can unzip them at the destination, assuming you need to, and just use FTP. I don't know if the server has a resumable server running but coreftplite is a client that supports resume and pause. One big advantage of FTP is that you can just set it up and let it run. Always use the binary mode for FTP unless you are uploading text.
