    I really love my Pre.. I love the camera, and I love the touchstone, and I take pictures ALL the time. Heck, soon i'll even be able to take Videos!

    but what I DONT like, is having to connect the darn USB cable to the pre in order to transfer all the photos over..

    Isn't there an app that transfers them automatically (or even manually) using the wireless network and a shared folder on my PC?

    or maybe the other way around.. share the files on the pre so I can access them from my PC?

    It'll make life so much easier...

    WinSCP :: Download

    then follow the instructions here for optware:
    Next steps - WebOS Internals

    then follow these setup instructions for winscp:
    Hostname: [my pre's ip]
    port: [my pre's port] (222 if you followed the Optware enabling instructions verbatim)
    username and password you set

    Check 'Advanced Options' and select "Environment>SFTP".
    In the SFTP server box enter: sudo /opt/libexec/sftp-server

    Be sure to set "mount -o remount,rw /" to write and "mount -o remount,ro /" when done. (If on Windows, do this through PuTTY. I haven't found a way to do it through WinSCP, but you can go to "Commands>Open in PuTTY" from the main toolbar.)

    The much easier steps are:

    1) Install Preware (http://install.preware.org)
    2) Install OpenSSH SFTP Server from the Optware section in Preware
    3) Follow the steps in the OpenSSH homepage link to set up your ssh keys.
    4) Use WinSCP as root on port 22 using your private ssh key.

    done.

    You can even use rsync to only transfer the files that have changed since last time ...

    It's not really being lazy, it's wanting the features that are RIGHT there... heh. I'm waiting to see one to sync music as well.

    I know what you mean, but I think for now, that's all we can do.

    I did a quick search. I found something that might be useful to me. However, this may not be what u were looking for.
    http://www.precentral.net/app-galler...der-social-web
    This app supposedly uploads photos to the web. From there u can pull down ur photos.

    Is there a Mac alternative to WinSCP?

    I haven't tried it with my Pre yet, but yes:
    Cyberduck | FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Cloud Files & Amazon S3 Browser for Mac OS X | About
    Silly name, but it handles FTP, SFTP, WebDAV, Cloud Files & Amazon S3.

    Edit: And, after trying it a few times, I've not had any luck. I can connect with command line sftp, but not CyberDuck. sshfs works fine too, but that's an even more technical solution than sftp itself.

    I also can't seem to get this to work.

    So could you perhaps describe in simple terms how to do sftp with Terminal on the Mac?

    I still hope now with both the webos internal and official Palm (soon) PDKs, we will see a webOS FTP client soon...

    Why, when I can access EVERY file on my Pre, (not just the usb drive!) from any computer in the house while my Pre is setting safely on the t/s.

    Hi Rod, I am unable to find the instructions to set up ssh keys, no.3 in your list, any chance you could send me a link when you get a minute.

    Cheers, Stu.

    Select the OpenSSH package in Preware and tap on the homepage link.
