Rookie question, how to transfer file from PC to Omega (Windows OS)
I am very new to openWRT and Linux in general. Recently I want to write a python program on my PC and transfer this .py file to my Omega. But I just don't know how exactly.
One possible way I can think of is to connect a thumbdrive to the expansion dock and use a command like cp to copy the file over.
Using the Console could be another way?
I would like to know what you usually do to transfer the file over. For example, is it possible to transfer file while connecting the Omega through serial?
Thanks a lot in advance!
Simplest is to get yourself a copy of WinSCP (http://winscp.net/eng/index.php) and use it to connect to your Omega.
For the connection, set:
- File Protocol: SCP
- Host name: Host name for your Omega (though you may need to just specify the IP address like I do - mine is 192.168.3.1)
- Port Number: 22
- User name and password will be root/onioneer (unless you have changed the password via Omega Console)
I assume that you are OK running things on your Omega via Terminal on your Omega. Though you can also use tools like PuTTY (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/) or MobaXterm (http://mobaxterm.mobatek.net/) for access rather than always going through the Console on the browser.
Also, if you prefer, Filezilla (https://filezilla-project.org/) can also be used instead of WinSCP - I've used both but prefer and am more familiar with WinSCP
Hi @Kit-Bishop Thanks a lot for your help.
I have not tried Filezilla but just tried using WinSCP. Works like a charm!
I am using PuTTY for serial access as instructed by the Omega tutorial. Will definitely try out MobaXterm in a while!
