file transfer from vm


I am trying to find a way to transfer my downloaded files from a 2000 server family vm inside of debian 2.6.8.1 . I was unable to get the main music downloading program i use to work with the current kernal, so i installed it in the vm, Windows is just so easy =). So i have all my music stored in the vm, and have been trying to get it to the main machine. There is a crazy firewall with my internet provider. I've heard to use ftp and scp, i was just wondering if anyone had any other suggestions.

What is a vm? Virtual Machine, or what?

Doesn't make sense.

And 2000 is? Windows 2000?

I'm trying to extend what you are saying:
You are running [w]2000 on top of vm[ware] running on debian and for some reason you don't have access to the files you have in the w2000 system. Correct?

Well, are the files physically in your hard disk? How come does the w2000 has access to the files, but the underlying OS doesn't?


Or are you trying to do something else, like transfering files over the network (but expressing the problem somewhat strangely)? When you say "main machine", do you mean a separate computer you are accessing over the network or just "main" as opposed to "virtual machine"? If later, what does your ISP has to do all of this?
