Transferring Files to the Raspberry Pi over the Network

Hmmm, I'm going to have to do something about those titles.  They're descriptive but, really, very boring.  Maybe I should be chanelling GaGa.

I was having trouble getting file transfers working from within PuTTY, so like all good noobs I gave up and did it the easy way.  FileZilla is probably the easiest option.  You can download it from here.  Then click on the .exe file to install it (like all good easy-to-use windows programs it comes as a self extracting file).

Now open it.  Remember how to get the IP address using Angry IP Scanner?  Good, do that again.

Now enter the number into the Host box (top left) and enter your Username and Password.  If they're pi and raspbian, then you should really think about changing the password.

Wow, look, the contents of your computer is on the left, and the contents of the Pi will be on the right.  You can just drag on drop files from here.

Thanks to Pix from the Adelaide Hackerspace for his help working this out.
