Hi, i am newbie. I have problems to transfer files between Linux to Windows. Here goes mi situation.
I have already install pscp in windows, i tested it typing pscp in command line, its ok. I have read that pscp is primordial to perform the transfers.
The problem is the next: i am located in /root, trying to transfer install.log to c:\temp, doing the next: pscp.exe email@example.com: /root/install.log c:\temp
and the result is:
-bash: pscp.exe: command not found
I am searching in the internet for a solution but with no success yet. Could you help me please?
You can not transfer from linux to windows using scp without a ssh server running on the windows computer. You need to transfer the install.log using a client on the windows computer. There are windows GUI sftp clients like filezilla and winscp that are easier to use then pscp.
If you are generating files on the Linux server that you want to be available to Windows, it might be better to create a shared directory on the Windows machine that can then be mounted on the Linux server.
schneidz, originally i wanted to transfer files automatically from linux to windows, using cron, but, allend show me how to do it from command line of windows (pscp firstname.lastname@example.org:/root/install.log c:\temp\install.log), so, this problem has become a windows problem cause now i have to automate from windows side.
Thanks partners, i will be hovering this forum frequently.
This just worked fine for me on windows 7 computer connecting to a fedora 20 computer. There is no sshd server on windows, it's not necessary to have one to use pscp from windows. You'd only need a sshd server if you want to initiate a ssh connection from the linux machine to the windows machine.
