    i have files in my vps, i don't want to do drag and drop to my pc instead i want a download link which i can put into a download software and let it download.

    i know it has private in VPS, but still i think someway should be there.

    is there any way i can achieve this ?

    Your Files are Large? If you would like create link based on your VPS - you need setup a web server at first. But i think you can use just sendspace or something for this. Good Luck!

    Try using some cloud file hosting. If you install a web server on a windows vps you'll need to monitor it 24x7 cuz it's gonna get hacked sooner or later.

    A few ways;
    - Use mounted drive, if this is a Windows and you will see the drive on your desktop
    - Run a script to upload files to a webserver, if you don't want to run a local webserver
    - Setup Dropbox or Box Sync

    filezilla has a free windows FTP server or bitvise there's lots of them if you don't want to bother with configuring IIS, not sure what download software you using but it likely supports FTP/SFTP or you can use a free client for that too or a browser. Also can restrict access to it's user account, use strong passwords and non-standard ports for added security.
