cp from linux to windows using putty


Hello,

Does anyone out there know what the correct way to copy a file from a linux box ( running Fedora Core ) to a windows box ( running XP ). I have putty installed on the windows box and I can ssh into my linux box. The problem is that when I tried to copy a file back to the other windows machine it just makes a new file on the linux box ( named c:windows:desktop , exactly like I typed it - it removed the back-slashes ).

Thanks in advance for your help,

Aaron

What I need to know is what is the exact format or the command that I type in after I am logged in as root on my other machine?

Thanks,

Aaron

PuTTY is the just for remote client sessions. You need the command line PSCP app to transfer files or for a GUI app use:
