File transfer from unix to windows

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how I can transfer files from a unix machine to my computer at home through secure shell or telnet? Is there a command or something? I could always attack them to an email I suppose if there isn''t a command or more standard way of transfering files between machines. Thanks, Russell

Yup,

scp (secure cp) is good.

You should also have SFTP available as well. If you get the Windows SSH client, it will have SFTP explorer like interface available to transfer files between the two machines. sftp is usually a sub-system started when requested and not run like the usal ftp. So, you might be able to initiate an sftp session depending on your setup.

You can get it at http://www.ssh.com

A lot of unix machines have sz as well. If you are using something like hyperterminal for your windows telnet client, you could recieve zmodem files through your telnet session.

My school is constantly waging war on anything non-http and even then some...

so I have a variety of ways of doing it...

I have a file dropper email... send an email to an address and I have a daemon monitering that account and puting the file around accordingly... also file requests too

I have a ftp, ssh, sftp, scp, etc... all running (jsut upgraded to ssh 3.1.0 *grin*)

I have a HTTP ftp interface... i.e. I goto the website on my box through http and have it connect to wherever via ftp and relays information back

I have Samba running (for some very weird reason they dont block NetBIOS... but they do block FTP now...)

And I have a friend port forwarding port 8080 on his box to the FTP on mine... *grin again*

The PuTTY SSH components are really good, and quite small. They have the telnet/SSH client, an scp client, and the sftp client. My school just recently switched over to using secure shell instead of telnet/ftp, and I didn''t really like the Windows SSH client they suggested. And I''ve been using PuTTY ever since I found it.
