This document describes how to upload files from a local Windows computer to a Windows CVM using Microsoft Terminal Services Client (MSTSC).
Make sure the Windows CVM can access the public network.
This document takes a Windows 7 computer as an example. The procedure may vary slightly according to the operating system version.
Obtaining a public IP
Log in to the CVM console, navigate to the Instances page, and record the public IP of the CVM to which you want to upload files.
- Press Windows + R on the local computer to open the Run window.
- In the Run pop-up window, enter mstsc, and click OK to open the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box.
- In the pop-up dialog box, enter the public IP address of the CVM and click Show Options.
- On the General tab, enter the CVM public IP address and username “Administrator”.
- Select the Local Resources tab and click More.
- In the Local devices and resources pop-up window, select the Drives module, check the local disk where the files to upload locate, and click OK.
- After the local configuration is complete, click Connect to log in to Windows CVM remotely.
- Select and click Computer on the Windows CVM, and you can see the local disk attached.
This step uses a Tencent Cloud Windows CVM with Windows Server 2016 operating system as an example. The procedure may vary slightly according to the operating system version.
- Double click to open the attached local disk. Copy desired local files to another drive of the Windows CVM.
For example, copy the file A from local disk (E) to the C drive of Windows CVM.
To download files from Windows CVM to your computer, you only need to copy desired files from the CVM to the attached local disk.
