File sharing from pi to windows

Fri Oct 04, 2013 9:36 pm

How would I go about connecting the pi so that I can access its files from my windows computer?

Im messing around with a LAMP server, and I would like to be able to do the coding and whatnot from my desktop with minimal work.

You can set up a samba share or NFS.

If you already have SSH set up, you can transfer via SFTP. From your Windows desktop, just open up a program that supports SFTP like FileZilla or WinSCP, and connect to your Pi over Port 22 (not port 21 like FTP) with your user credentials.

If you want to do Windows networking / Samba, I have a guide on my blog here;

This seems like the best solution for me. Less work the better XD

Ironically Ive done the sort of thing in your guide to connect a raspberry to a domain for work, I just didn't really understand what I was doing and just hoped it worked in the end XD

Ill give yours a read, maybe it will clear some things up for me.


Thanks for all your suggestions.
