I need a program that can manage files on a remote device running Linux using SCP. The remote device runs OpenWrt. On Windows there is a perfect one WinSCP. it is weird that there is no native program that can be used.
The program should be able to:
- list files
- copy and move files to/from the device and within the device.
- delete files on the device
- view and edit files
- change file permissions
I have found only one alternative, except using CLI and installing WinSCP with wine.
It is Midnight Commander with
fish. It works really poor. The problems are:
- It mixes up
~on a remote device and on the computer.
- It can't edit files. I can open and edit, but they are saved to a wrong place.
There is a lot of other annoying problems that makes it almost unusable. I gave up using
mc and now I am using pure shell on the remote device.
Please do not tell me that Nautilus, etc support these features. They don't!!!
Linux native file managers require SFTP that is not available on the remote device.
Maybe it is possible to get nautilus use SCP, but I did not find a way of doing it without changing sources.
THIS IS NOT A DUPLICATE !!!
I have a specific requirement that is not covered in the duplicate question.
If it is not possible on Ubuntu, then this could be an answer.
