I don’t use Ubuntu nowadays. I have always been a big fan of Windows. Perhaps I have always used Windows and got habituated with it, that’s why. But anyways, when I started using Ubuntu for development, I was missing WinSCP most. I needed to transfer files between my computer and web server frequently. And I hate typing long paths to use SCP command from the console.
You may ask why I didn’t use WINE and then I could have used WinSCP. That I did eventually. It worked for me but sometimes it used to get hang.
So if you are looking for a Linux based application, use SECPanel. It is a GUI utility for connecting to server using SSH or SCP. It doesn’t have all the advanced features of WinSCP. But you can easily copy your files between your local machine and web server using your mouse only. A cool software that can help idle guys like you and me
