Send a file from my PC through LAN to a HDD connected to my Raspberry

Mon Jun 11, 2018 8:29 am

Hello!

I would like to know how to send files from my PC to the HDD I have connected to the Raspberry. I usually copy the file from the PC directly to the HDD connected via USB. But I know that it has to be possible to send files from PC to the HDD via LAN or something.

Thanks you!

Get Samba/CIFS running on your Raspberry. Mount the Raspberry share on Windows (net use command or network neighbourhood). Write files to it. Job done.

There's a million and one tutorials for that on the internets.

Or try scp, though you may have to enable ssh first.

One windows app that supports it (there are others) is winscp

I did it with VNC Lots of tutorials for that too. Adafruit.com has lessons. I played with Rasbian light on PI 0. I'm pretty sure I sent files to it. I'm sure you could navigate to a HD that's mounted. It's been at least 6 months since I played with it. I definitely used VNC to do that in Win.
