    • PuTTY and WinSCP - alternative for Mac Users

      As we all know Apple software is the best woldwide because it is from Apple and everything is sooo beautiful and so simple.

      For those who are Apple users but not Apple fanboys here are my results for alternative Mac software:

      1. PuTTY -> PuTTY
      codingsteps.com/installing-and-using-putty-on-mac-os-x/

      for further informations (installing MacPorts) see here:
      guide.macports.org/#installing

      Works also with OSX 10.6 if you are installing XQuartz instead of X11 from your installation DVD.

      2. WinSCP -> Transmit (unfortunately it costs 29,99 € in the Mac App Store). In addition you can also mount the system device of your server in the woldclass build in Mac - filemanager called "Finder" (or worse filemanager alternatives like Path Finder).

      I could not find similar WinSCP freeware for Mac. Cyberduck is not similar. Maybe someone else can recommend Apple freeware al la WinSCP?

      Erm.... why do you want to use PuTTY on a system where you have the SSH Client onboard?

      For the WinSCP part, learn how to use SCP on the commandline...

      Correct. I'm using the pre installed "Terminal" for the ssh connection.
      Usually i use it also for the scp connection. But if you want a extra software you can try "Fugu"

      That's what I was thinking.. but I've never understood Mac-heads.

      I've also saw Linux users trying to get Putty working w/ wine... again, this just makes absolutely zero sense to me....
