transfer file from linux to windows


Hi All,

I have to transfer a file from Linux box to a system either a windows or Linux(most probably windows).
how to do that remember as a user i have limited access on the Linux box. So no SAMBA and no NFS. I can ping successfully that machine from my Linux box.

Is there any way to know what type of operating system machine have if i have only IP address and the machine is anywhere else in the world.

Note: i tried rsync but no luck.

There are lots of ways. FTP is a way if you have a FTP server on one machine, and a client on the other.

Sneaker net, if it will fit on a floppy, or a CD or a DVD, or a memory stick. Pick one, with the capacity you need.

scp (linux to linux), scp, e.g. winscp (linux to windows).

since ssh server is running, SCP (as mentioned by me earlier) is available already.
If you need files from this linux box, to you windows machine, install winscp package and connect to it (as you would with ssh). Then you can copy files towards your windows machine.
No need for FTP...

In short: no.

Longer: Different pieces of software (p0f, queso, nmap) try to guess what the remote OS is based on IP responses. Additionally, certain services indicate Windows vs. Mac vs. "generic" Unix. Additionally, some services (snmp/http) might actually broadcast exactly what bits of software are running. But it's not really 100% reliable.
