Here are two programs one can use to do secure file transfer protocol SFTP.

The Windows 7 32/64 program is Winscp and putty


WinSCP is an open source free sFTP/FTP client for Windows and the prefered choice for remote file management and editing. WinSCP documentation.

Legacy SCP protocol is also supported. Its main function is safe copying of files between a local and a remote computer.
Download & Install WinSCP

Download the Windows installer from the WinSCP Download Page.
After successfully downloading the file execute it to install the program, your best bet is to run a typical install.
After the installation of WinSCP we can also integrate PuTTY, which can be downloaded here.
Save the putty.exe file in the WinSCP folder tree C:\Program Files\WinSCP\PuTTY

Configuring PuTTy Integration

PuTTY is a free implementation of Telnet and SSH for Win32 and Unix platforms, along with an xterm terminal emulator.

Open WinSCP
Select Preferences from the left tree
Then click on the Preferences button
Select Applications under Integration from the left tree
Browse to the location where you saved the putty.exe file typically

"C:\Program Files\WinSCP\PuTTY\putty.exe"
Note:You can use the Windows variables for instance %PROGRAMFILES% to specify the path to your Program Files folder.
When done click OK.

Choosing a Preferred Editor

WinSCP allows for defining preferred editors based on file extensions to add, remove, edit remote files.

Open WinSCP
Select Preferences from the left tree
Then click on the Preferences button
Select Editors in the left tree
Then select the add button
Within the Add Editor popup window make the appropriate changes and select the OK button

Using WinSCP

The first time use of WinSCP requires connection information to login to your server:

Start WinSCP
Enter the hostname or IP number of your server (Tablet or Phone)
Set the port number to 53522.
Enter your credentials (username=root and associated password).
Click Save
Click Login

and the tablet/phone app is Server Ultimate

Select SSH Server type

Server Name= as desired
Use port 53522

Be sure you add a Server Ultimate user
user=root (must be root)
password=as desired

Be sure to set Winscp port to the same 53522

When you start WinSCP, Winscp will also open a Terminal Shell Window
and log you in automatically.

Once you learn WinSCP you will be a pro @ file systems....

You can SFTP to your phone from anywhere in the world.
You would need to forward your router WanIP to the phoneIP on
port 53522.
