Overall Opinion: If you are a Windows user who has to do work on remote Linux servers, you have almost certainly faced the problem of moving files from one machine to the other, and performing other types of file operations. WinSCP was created with you in mind. It essentially makes the remote server seem like any other file structure on Windows. It even provides two separate user interfaces: a standard Windows file manager and an old-style Norton Commander-like interface, with the local and remote file structures side by side. WinSCP comes with everything you need, including support for every major secure transfer protocol, batch file scripting, a command line interface, an integrated editor, directory synchronization, as well as authentication and security options. Best of all, the program is completely free to use and is open source. There really is nothing much to dislike about WinSCP. Though its interface in today's world looks a little bit dated. Also, if you want to switch between the two interfaces, there is no toggle to do so. You have to change a setting in the preferences.
Pros: Is completely free to use and is open source Makes working on a remote Linux machine from a Windows computer as easy as possible Supports all secure file transfer protocols
Cons: Has a dated interface Switching between its two interface requires changing a preference setting
Quick review of WinSCP. A handy little program.
