If windows has an ftp server running then ftp can be used for the transfer.

If windows has a secure shell openssh server running, same thing.

putty does not have the native capability in the terminal program to access windows files. At least not that i know of.

Even better that pscp, which is a terminal based program, for those really lazy (like me), you can use WinSCP.

http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/download.php

It uses the same options that PuTTY does and recognises PuTTY keys etc, but it's all gui and drag and drop, which is most helpful in Windows.

Hi chris,

there is a software (winscp)
http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/index.php

that complements putty and runs with ssh protocol. I am using it from windows to get/put files in my linux box.

Frank.
Linux?. Yes, of course.

hi

thanks everyone,

I found on the Internet SSH Secure Shell
for Workstations Windows Client:

http://www.ssh.com/support/documentation/online/ssh/winhelp/32/

Can transfer files also and it seems to look like WinSCP.

What do you think about that ?


I've installed WinSCP now, but how can I change the File Transfer Mode, for example from binary to ASCII ?

greetings
chris

Hi chris,

Menu Options -> Preferences -> Tranfer

There are many options including ASCII - Binary transfer mode, but the Automatic mode i think is the best choice.

Frank.
Linux?. Yes, of course.

since you specifically mention putty, the friendly people at chiark also make the fabulous sftp client: http://the.earth.li/~sgtatham/putty/latest/x86/psftp.exe
