Putty : Remote copy


I have managed to connect to a PC remotely using Putty. Now i want to copy a file remotely to my PC. But I want to use only putty and not an other command like scp, sftp. How can I do this?

Thanks in advance!!!

You can't. PuTTY is for ssh/telnet connections (terminal sessions) only. To use the same ssh setup that PuTTY uses you'll need to install something like WinSCP on your PC to do file transfers.

umm putty is just a linux CLI for windows. if you are wanting to copy files you will need to use scp or sftp. i would sagest using winSCP to copy files to and from windows to linux. this is as it states a scp for windows to linux. it has a very clean and intuitive GUI, if you can use cuteFTP, you can use winSCP. in combination with putty i found it to be invaluable for controlling and managing linux systems from a windows box.

If you really, really want to copy a file through putty you could use cut 'n' paste! If the file is not a text file you would have to uuencode it first. Better to follow the advice in the other replies and use a tool specifically for transfering files over SSH.
