Hi,
ftp is probably your easiest option, unless you want to cut and paste the contents of the file by hand.

Another option could be NFS/SAMBA, but this would probably involve more software installs.

Why do you not want to use ftp ? You shouldn't have to install any software for this process.

Hy

In your case i would also prefer HP CIFS Server.

or ftp :)

Re: Upload file from windows to unix

Hi,
from another thread:

c:\> cd
c:\> ftp
Give the username/password
Make it binary or ascii as per requirement.
Binary ( for data files)
Ascii ( for text files)
ftp> bin or ascii
ftp> put to copy the file from windows clients to hpux box.
ftp> bye
You can do "man ftp" on the hpux machine to learn more about ftp.

Once you are happy with the commands, you can put them into a .bat file and run as required.

Yes of course you can use the windows ftp. perhaps you can write a script which uploads the files automatically by ftp.

you'll find a lot of ftp script in this forum...

Re: Upload file from windows to unix

You could always SFTP. This will provide you with security. Putty (psftp) is a free sftp client that does not require an install. Just download and run. Example of how to user Putty.

psftp.exe
login
password
cd /dir
bin or ascii
put

Hope this helps!!
