Can I place files on Blomp using ssh or rsync, the Linux programs?

Thanks for the Blomp service.
I am going to have a Raspberry Pi running Linux and Python reading a sensor. The Pi is going to be plugged into a school or home network. Most of the time, the Raspberrt Pi will be running without a keyboard, mouse, or monitor. It will be 10 miles away from me. The distance means a big hassle if something as simple as the janitor unplugging the computer happens.

So my question is, can I use the conventional ssh or scp (secure copy) or rsync (secure copy with push) to transfer data files from this remote computer to the Blomp file storage area?

I see that Blomp has a Linux client. I would like to know what is inside that client before running it.

Thanks so much for a reply. LeeMcK

Hello leemck,

At the moment we do not support CLI ssh/scp/rsync. We currently only support GUI interfaces. We hope to add features such as this in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks,
BlompSupport
