Uploading/downloading windows file on linux server


My question is clear from the title itself. I am new to this area,so I don't have much idea about this. Anybody please tell me is it possible to download/upload a windows file on Linux servers.

your question is absolutely NOT clear in the title. there is no such thing as a "windows file". files are files. So based on that, yes, it is very possible. what issue are you actually experiencing?

A please or thank you would be appreciated next time too. thanks.

generally speaking, absolutely. you have downloaded many many many files to and from Linux servers online without being aware of it. There are many ways to transfer data between computers though, and you've not gone into any depth about this so we can't comment on any finer points.

uploading/downloading word is used in case of FTP . of you want to upload any file / folder in linux server then use ftp application to upload file/folder too and fro form linux server...
for this you have to do own...
i think this is very much clear to you...

Arbitrarily picking FTP for this is potentially misleading. There are many potentially easier and better solutions for fiel transfer... rsync, sftp etc.
