Editing files on linux server from windows

Posted on

Problem :

I want to edit text files on Linux server from Windows, using text editor like Notepad++ or UltraEdit.

I’ve managed to do so using WinSCP. It can edit files remotely and offers me to choose local application to open those files.

That is exactly what I need, but when I hit ctrl-s (not every time, in about 50% cases), it waits for around 10 seconds, alerts that connection has failed, and offers me to “abort”. When I click abort, it instantly reconnect and save file.

So does anybody knows any other way to edit files remotely without this annoying waiting period.

Solution :

A Notepad++ plugin called NppFTP allows remote editing via FTP, FTPS, FTPES and SFTP.
