SCP

SourceForge.net provides support for managing project web and developer web content, and uploading file releases using SCP through our File management service.

SCP (Secure copy) is part of the SSH protocol suite.

Authentication

To authenticate via SCP, use the same username as your SourceForge user account.

The password is the same password that is associated with your SourceForge.net user account.

Note: The use of the old combined username for SCP will still work, but is no longer necessary.

Clients

SCP clients include:

  • scp, a command-line client included in OpenSSH, available on Mac OS X, Linux, and BSD natively; and on MS Windows through Cygwin.
  • pscp, a command-line client included in PuTTY, available for MS Windows.
  • WinSCP, a graphical client available for MS Windows.

Examples are provided for scp:

For managing file releases

  • FRS Hostname: frs.sourceforge.net
  • Path: /home/frs/project/PROJECT_UNIX_NAME/ - Substitute your project UNIX name data for PROJECT_UNIX_NAME
  • Username: Your SourceForge.net Username
  • Password: Your SourceForge.net Password

An example session might look like (where Username="jsmith", Project UNIX name="fooproject",Release dir is "Rel_1"):

[jsmith@linux ~]$ scp FILE jsmith@frs.sourceforge.net:/home/frs/project/fooproject/Rel_1
