Connecting to a Server using SSH: the Fundamentals - Working with files
(Page 4 of 4 )
You can work directly with files in the same way you did with normal FTP, after you connect to the server using a GUI interface (such as an FTP client).
In most FTP clients there are two working columns. The left one is the directory (showing your local computer files). The right one, on the other hand, is the web server directory.
You can double check to see if the connection is secure. If you can see a padlock icon in the bottom right of your FTP client (see above screen shot inside the red box), you have a secure connection.
