I created a ssh on my linux mint 12 (running on laptop) and I want to transfer files from my win7 (desktop) to my linux mint through WinSCP. I have a multi LAN port modem. Both desktop and laptop are connected to the internet. Now my query is, Does BSNL counts my sftp transfer between my laptop and desktop for that 2.5GB download + upload limit?I'm on a 2Mbps 600 Combo plan.Could someone shed some light on this?

As long as you are connecting using a LAN IP, you should be fine.

If the IP addresses of both the computers are private IPs (192.168.x.x or 10.x.x.x or 172.16-31.x.x) then the transfer shouldn't be charged as it won't be going through the Internet in most configurations. OTOH if you have set up your own routing then you wouldn't need to ask. :)Another way is to check the speed of the transfer. If the transfer speed is more than the plan speed, then it isn't going through the BSNL network.

Out of curiosity, why SFTP? Why not a simple mount?
Since I run two completely different OS, mount over using a network cable or a easy transfer isn't an option at all. Moreover, SFTP is secure in all ways

SAMBA share?
Does SAMBA share work well when two different OS are involved? Could you please elucidate on this?
