    is there something like sftp,etc?

    and, if I want to transfer file between them via internet, how to do ?

    Yes, you can use WinSCP.

    doesn't work.

    I know WinSCP is a SFTP client ,I've make it works well with DD-Wrt, but I can't get it work with tomato,I've also tried PSFTP, same result.
    PSFTP's error is:
    sh: /usr/libexec/sftp-server: not found
    Fatal: unable to initialise SFTP: could not connect

    WinSCP's error is attached as the picture.

    My SSH client(PuTTY) works well with tomato! Do I need some configuration on tomato to make SFTP works?

    As far as i know, you should set WinSCP to use SCP (not SFTP), and don't forget to start SSH Daemon

    Yes, I tried SCP, it works!.

    And I've checked that dropbear doesn't support sftp.

    And what username&pass do I use for SCP with WinSCP (when connecting to Tomato) ? I saw the WinSCP FAQ so don't RTFM :)...I don't know what username is this in the example...

    Should be root

    I haven't found a way to creat an account in tomato except the embeded "root", so, you may want to try using root as your username.

    Can you login on tomato using SSH?

    No. The only "management" that I've done was through http (remote and localy). Now I've tried through WinSCP to access tomato. I've introduced and the port 22, I've put SCP as "File protocol" and I press "login". When asked about the username I've put "root", "admin" luck.

    Tomato administration page looks like that:

    On your screen shot I did not see a check in the box that says "Allow Password Login".

    Edit - Took the g off login.

    They say that I'm stupid, and they are right. :) I cheched the box and there I go: I succeded logging with "root", but when I introduced the password comes a error...

    We all get that error. Just click OK.
    You are using SCP only, right?

    To avoid the error untick "Lookup user groups" in the environment "SCP/Shell" tab and "save" before "Login".
