How to etit files from win XP?
Hi, Ive wrote some updates to Captive portal that I will integrate in Monowall, but I have to wait on mono ppl tp explain me how to edit files…
So I thought maybe you can tell me how to edit files? Ive installed MVware Developeer Image (apperantly one that i got is v0.96.2) but any way I cant gett anything to work.... if I go to shell it doesnt even let me to do "dir" although "cd" works.... also to edit files I normally use Linspect Editor but it only gets the config menu of the box?
Diagnostics -> Edit file
Diagnostics Comand not found :-(
This is a Drop down menu, not a shell command.
I ment how can I see the filder list and etc. Sure use GUI for file editing will work, but might get furstrating after a while

Enable SSH at your pfsense. Then use http://winscp.net/ to connect with user root and password <webguipassword>. It's an easy way to download/upload/modify files.</webguipassword>
Doesnt work :-(
I've rtied all 3 modes and im just getting the errors: access denied for ftp, evetuthing else giies me that reply message is too long
Login as ROOT. Set mode to SFTP (allow SCP fallback).
This has been axed like 100 times now.

Actually, I've been asking the same thing a couple of days ago.
'Of course' I searched the forum and the mail lists - but did'nt get an answer to my question "How does one connect pscp to transfer files from and to it…."
Have to say that I have SSH access to the pfSEnse box. - This is just plain easy.
And in 'my days', using vi wasn't any problem - it was far more better then edlin on another platform…. ;)
The solution to my problem was: I was using the user named admin, that just doesn't work. One should use root. Like:
pscp -ls firstname.lastname@example.org:/usr ```. This will ask you for a password, and afterwards spit out the directory of **/usr**. Better yet:
pscp -pw mypassword email@example.com:/root/.login login
will copy the (hidden) .login file to your host, the file will be named login. You could edit it, and copy it back. **pscp** is a Windows XP command line progam, part of the **Putty** telnet/SSH toolkit, you can download it for free.
What is wrong with Diagnostics -> Edit file?
