Recently I had the need to edit remote files under Windows 10, and I used one of my favourite editors, which is emacs. In order to accomplish this, I only had to include these lines on the emacs init.el configuration file:
(require 'tramp) (set-default 'tramp-auto-save-directory "C:\\Users\\<username>\\AppData\\Local\\Temp") (set-default 'tramp-default-method "plink")
<username> with your Windows user.
Don’t forget to check that the environmet variable
%Path% contains the folder where plink.exe is.
After reloading the init.el configuration file using the command:
then pressing return twice to accept the default filename, I could now edit remote files using the command to open a file:
and specify the connection string:
/<remote username>@<remote host>:
then pressing return and entering the remote username password. Et voilá!
Until next time, have a lot of coding fun!
