How to upload to my smoothwall [n00b instructions]

Hey all ... linux n00b ...

Got smoothwall installed & running & patched ... can connect to it with SSH using putty on my XP pro box ... need to know how to upload a tarball to it using SSH, to apply a mod.

Instructions are here :

What I need help with, is this part :
5 - HOWTO install Bandwidth Bar 1.0
**Backup the files listed above as this mod will modify them.

Grab the following: Bandwidth-Bar-1.0.tgz. Upload it to your SmoothWall (using sftp on SmoothWall's ssh port 222) and place in the /tmp directory. To extract the files, login to your SmoothWall (ssh on SmoothWall uses port 222 for those that do not know), change to the /tmp dir and, execute the command:
tar zxvf ./Bandwidth-Bar-1.0.tgz -C /

Not sure how to upload it to my smoothwall using sftp on smoothwall's ssh port 222, and place it int he /tmp directory.

Step by step please - much appreciated.

Hi :-)

You have two options.

1. pscp

If you have installed PuTTY from the setup package, then the directory to which you installed it (usually C:\Program Files\PuTTY) should contain a program called pscp. The command should go as follows:
cd c:\program files\putty
pscp -l root -P 222 c:\path\to\Bandwidth-Bar-1.0.tgz <your smoothwall>:/tmp/

c:\program files\putty with your real path to putty (c:\program files\putty is the default)
c:\path\to\Bandwidth-Bar-1.0.tgz with the real local path
<your smoothwall> with the ip address of your smoothwall server

pscp -l root -P 222 c:\temp\Bandwidth-Bar-1.0.tgz

2. WinSCP

WinSCP is a nice GUI interface to scp. Download it from:
(feeling lazy?)

This will allow you to create a session that connects to port 222 of your smoothwall and copy the file just as you do with any explorer window.

Awesome... thx ...

Got it working with WinSCP, but I should really be learning command line ... got a link for the full Win32 Putty install ?
