Debian Wheezy Is Finally Allowing File Transfer to Windows 7

I did not change anything.  Maybe Windows 10 was the issue.


  1. You know, there is probably a way to host FTP from the Debian server, and use an FTP client on Windows.

    Not as intuitive as using Explorer (or equivalent) to browse a filesystem.

    And there are other fail-cases, especially if you don't have a single "Home" style folder on both machines that you want to synchronize.

    But FTP should still work with most flavors of Windows.

  2. I use ssh from Cygwin to get to and from Linux hosts all the time, and it works pretty well. I can use Samba, but really, ssh is faster and easier on my *nix oriented mind.
