    SFTP with FileZilla is the best combination and the most secure one too.

    Is there a good alternative for FileZilla for Linux GUI which doesn't need unprotected file format (Putty *.ppk) ?

    @ModyDev by "unprotected file format", are you talking about transport encryption? Because FileZilla supports SFTP over SSH.

    No, I am talking about the private key file stored by FileZilla in unprotected format *.ppk

    According to https://wiki.filezilla-project.org/Howto#Other_platforms, FileZilla works fine with standard SSH agent. I tested it on Ubuntu with XFCE+GNOME-keyring and verified that I didn't need to do any key file format conversion. The PuTTY format is only necessary on Windows because FileZilla uses PuTTY library on Windows; but you mentioned you were looking for a program for Linux.

    Use WinSCP - probably best FTP/SFTP client for Windows

    I use a Raspberry pi for local file storage and back it up to a remote server using good old rsync. Really powerful and easy.


    On windows, WinSCP does the job nicely.

    SCP is the way to go. On windows I use WinSCP but it is so much slower.

    SFTP most of the time for me here... some occasions, I use SCP if its server to server transfers...
    FTP... no way... too insecure from what I've read

    The usual combination of tarballing, compressing, and scp. It's worked perfectly for several decades (and no issues with port behavior and nasty NAT fixups), so- works for me!
