as far as i know putty is not an scp client... consider using winscp.
i assume you are trying to copy files between windows and a machine running an ssh server ?

if you are trying to use the windows program putty.exe on ubuntu linux, then you are a long way from home dorathy... consider using the in-built ssh, scp, sftp programs from within the commandline.

I will also recommend Winscp, if you want to copy files between Windows and Linux server.

There is another option of using pcsp.exe through command prompt to copy files.

Right, would be easier to simply use the Linux version.

But anyways, we need more info from the OP to answer this question.

We need to know the OS at both ends.
You could use eg Filezilla (which will do ftp or sftp as reqd), and the full putty install includes pscp, psftp as well.
