copy files using telnet


Hi to all. In the laboratory i am using telent to remotely access a pc. What i want isa to be able to copy files from my laptop to the remotely accessed pc (and vice versa). I know that i can use scp to copy remtoely files but i am not sure that the pc i am connecting to has ssh installed on it. So i really need to know if there is a way to copy files using telnet. Plz try to give as much information s

There are numerous ways to accomplish this (ppp/slip over telnet, zmodem over telnet), but they will likely require installing software on the remote machine. If you can do that, then you might as well just install ssh and/or rsync and make your life easy, secure and reliable.

PS- An Internet connected machine running telnet is a very attractive and easily hacked system.

is there any way to copy files in a machine which provides me only rssh for scp? i need a tool for windows...thx a lot!

btw winscp does not work in my case because the account that i have for this machine does not give me a shell at all...

On Windows, you can use PuTTY, if you need a ssh/scp/sftp client.
