when i use putty, the key is present but pscp.exe is not recognized

does that make sense?
since you are having problems with a windows executable, you will probably get better answeres from a windows forum.

the basic process is to use an ssh client to log in to a remote terminal and use an scp client to copy files across a network.

How is your ssh server set up?
Is your ssh server configured to only use public/private keys?
Can you log into your linux server from windows using PuTTy?

What exe file are you taling about?

As suggested it might be easier if you use a windows GUI sftp application.

Basically because it's all in the cloud; could easily be a VM in any given case. It's just a convention between a 'server' ie HW and an 'instance' ie actual Linux env.
