I am on Windows 10 and successfully used git bash cli to set up my EC2 instance (Cygwin was having issues with Python/PATH so I abandoned it). I was also able to clone the course git repository to get all course notebooks. However, I am currently unable to push those course files up into EC2 from my local drive. Is there a command line method, using git bash, for pushing the course files into my EC2 instance? I have tried – but have been unable to – successfully use the .pem/.ppk key from the initial creation of the ec2 instance that would allow me to do the transfer via Win SCP, so I was wondering if I could get around that step and just use git bash. Thank you!
@hlea01 : For Transferring files from your local machine to EC2:
Method 1 : When you are using Jupyter Notebook you can always upload files choosing the upload option
Method 2 : Setup your own repository on github, push your local files into that repository and pull the same from EC2 Command line (After SSH)
I haven’t personally tried using WinSCP. But it will work fine if you have set Security Group accordingly (Check whether Corresponding port is allowed to communicate with your instance).
Hope it Helps
Method 1 worked perfectly, and I will test out Method 2, since that seem like a better practice going forward. Thank you!
