Couchdrop is a cloud SCP, SFTP and Rsync server, which means files can be downloaded and uploaded using the SCP, SFTP or Rsync tool packaged with openssh on virtually any unix derivative.
Now with Couchdrop, you can Link your Google Drive account and use Google Drive as a storage provider. Once linked, you can transfer files to and from your Google Drive with SCP, SFTP and Rsync on any server without having to install the Google Drive app.
Create a Google Account
Before starting you need a Google account. This can easily be created by visiting http://drive.google.com.
Link Google Drive to Couchdrop
To link your Google Drive account to Couchdrop, first login to Couchdrop by visiting https://my.couchdrop.io.
Once logged in, click Storage on the navigation menu.
If you have not used Couchdrop yet, you will not see any Storage Buckets. We now need to create a new Storage Bucket for Google Drive. You can create as many storage buckets as desired, and associate different permissions and paths for each.
Click Add Storage and you will be presented with options to configure a bucket.
Here you need to specify a destination path, permission mode and bucket type. The path is what identifies this specific storage bucket when you are downloading or uploading files. For our example, we will leave it as "/" and we will configure the bucket type as "Google Drive".
Once the above appears, click "Save and Connect". This will take you to Googles OAuth page. Google will ask for your permission to Allow Couchdrop. Click Allow and you will be returned to your Couchdrop account.
Once the above has been completed, you will be returned to Couchdrop and you are good to go.
