I am looking to copy files from a local windows machine (my development machine) to another windows machine (the production machine).
Currently, the only way I can move files from one machine to the other is by manually using Ftp FileZilla client. The production server is hosting a non-SSL enabled FTP server.
I am looking for advice for the easiest way to securely copy a directory from the development machine to the production machine. The only requirement is that the solution allows for copying directories in a scripted manner.
I am aware of the following possibilities:
- Create a VPN and share a folder
- Set up a SSH server on the production machine
The development machine is running Windows 7 and the production machine is an Amazon EC2 instance running Windows Server 2008 R2. They are not on the same network or Homegroup.
What would you recommend?
