The easiest thing (for everyday use) would be to install a FTP server on your Linux box. But you can also use SFTP: PuTTY (full installation) comes with PSFTP, a tool to use that method. I can't say that it'll work for sure, but it's worth a try. Just connect to your box the same way you would with PuTTY itself and see what happens.

PuTTY also comes with an scp program called pscp. It works like scp.


To copy a file from the linux host to your local windows machine in the current directory, you can run the command like this:

C:\>pscp remotehost:/etc/hosts .
