Remotely copy files to Raspberry Pi

To enable or disable the SSH server on your Raspberry Pi (it is enabled by default) enter:

sudo raspi-config

in the terminal, then navigate to ‘Advanced Options‘, then ‘ssh‘, and then select ‘Enable or disable ssh server‘.

SSH is built into Linux distributions and Mac OS, so to copy a file over to Raspberry Pi enter:

scp /path/to/file user@ip-of-raspberry

If you’re using Windows, you can use PuTTY or WinSCP.

That’s it!
