copy files from telnet session to local drive


Is it possible to copy files from a telnet from a linux box onto the local hard drive of the computer that you are using to telnet?

I would not use telnet! Use ssh if you can. You may be able to use the rcp command if that traffic is allowed and the r commands are enabled, but seriously, use ssh tools if you can:

Code:
scp someuser@somehost.somedomain.com:/path/to/file :.

No I don't think you can use telnet, just r commands.

Shouldn't you be able to use zmodem, xmodem, etc over telnet? I've never tried it mind you...

Yes, I did that long ago with kermit over a telnet to a VAX.
You need a telnet client with support and a server program to run on the shell.

Hi,

You may try these commands to copy files from telnet to local pc:

# smbclient \\ipaddress\sharename -U sharename
(Now,It will prompt for username and passwd)
# get filename
(Not that particular file will be copied to your local drive)


Try the above ....

You could pipe the file using tar & netcat. Using telnet, you would tar the file, piping the output to netcat. On the receiving end, use netcat with the -l (listen) option and pipe the output to tar to extract the file.

---
Using ssh, with PKA, you wouldn't have authentication getting in the way and could do it directly:
tar -C directory/ -cf - file(s) | ssh user@host tar -C dest_dir/ -xvf -

You could transport a directory hierarchy this way securely to another computer over the internet using ssh & tar.

You might try it with telnet instead of ssh. I don't have a telnet server on my network to test it.
