Can I download files with putty directly to linode ?
Now, I can download that file on my computer, and then upload it to my linode with filezilla for example, thats ok. But this file have 2.5 GB, and thats gonna take a lot with my upload speed.
So my question is, can I somehow log in with Putty, and somehow download that file directly to my linode ?
You may have to install wget if it doesn't already exist on your Linode…
To install wget on Ubuntu/Debian:
apt-get install wget
To install wget on CentOS/Fedora/RedHat:
yum install wget
If the site you're trying to download a file from requires a login you can also try a text based browser called "lynx".
