Transfer data to USB using Linux terminal from Windows


I am currently having the Linux based terminal. I need to transfer the data from Windows PC to USB using Linux terminal.

Is there any way to transfer data to USB stick using Linux terminal through Windows PC?

I'm confused about what you mean. Do you have a machine that has both Windows and Linux installed and from which you want to transfer the data to a USB device? If that's the case, do you mean to say that your data is on a Windows partition and that you want to access it in Linux, so you can transfer it to the USB device using Linux?

Please be more specific about what your setup is and what you want to do. Edit: also, tell us which version (i.e. distribution) of Linux you're running.

Please define this better. You have a separate machine/system using a GNU/Linux distribution that is communicating with a M$ Windows PC? How?

Where is the USB mounted? Used by which system? Original data to be copied from M$ to Linux?

You need to provide more detail so we can aid you.

Putty is an ssh client and not an ssh server, so you can't scp files from Linux to Windows XP. You can however use "smbclient" (on Linux) to save or load files from a share on Windows XP (smbclient) or at the XP computer use putty's version of scp (pscp) to save files to the Linux server. If you need to routinely transfer files between Linux and Windows, you could set up shares so you can do it without resorting to ssh.

You could also setup NFS or ftp.

Hi,

You could use 'WinScp' to copy from the M$ to the mounted USB with the NTFS filesystem on the GNU/Linux machine. This assumes that you have 'ntfs-3g' available to you on the GNU/Linux machine.



The above link and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

Run that on the Windows PC, it will allow you to SCP to the Linux box and put data anywhere the user you authenticate with has permissions
