Hi!

You could use this How2:

....then use puttys version of scp (pscp) for the copy.

Re: Copy file

Not a very precise description of anything.

uname -a

> [...] copy files between server and client
> ( both direction ) [...]

Do you want to run the copy command on the
Windows system, or on the "unix box", or
both, or what?

> [...] I tried to use rcp [...]

Did you try to read the documentation?

man rcp
man rhosts

If you want corresponding info about the
Windows side, you might do better elsewhere.

> [...] scp [...]

Or that. But you may need to read some
things to get that to work, too.

Re: Copy file

As you say that you need a both directions flow, may be you should consider using SAMBA.
