Depends on what that embedded Linux has to offer.
Try
find / -iname "*dvr"

Does the thing support ftp as well?


Cheers,

thanks for your reply!

I think ftp is not available.
I can see now the file/s that i want to copy, any other way that i can transfer this file/s to windows? this is the path... /dev/dvr/usr/local/softwell_dvr/var/archive/dvr_0_0_20051024_090813.dvr

thanks

Well, telnet is not suitable for file-transfer as such.

The only possible work-around that I could see is
ssh/scp or rsh/rcp ...


Cheers,
