The easiest way - install Cygwin on Windows and set up SSHD.

Hi,

You can turn to Google for answers to those standard questions. This site for example gives you a lot of pointers on how to proceed:
Share files from Windows to Linux.

Kind regards,

Eric

You may use any of Remote Desktop Protocol client to access a Win-box from Linux one (GUI: tsclient, Remmina. Non-GUI: rdesktop, freerdp-x11).
You may share the folder in Windows and access it from Linux using a command-line smbclient or some GUI-tool like Gigolo for XFCE or nautilus-connect-server in GNOME.

The simplest way is just run in a terminal window:
Code:
rdesktop -z -k en-us -r disk:linbox=${HOME} win-machine-ip-address-or-name
After connecting, you'll see a "network drive" called "linbox" in My Computer which in fact is your Linux box home folder.

Hello,

Just install winscp software in your Windows machine and then using winscp in windows you can copy all your data in Linux machine.

Reading through this thread, it appears the majority of those answering don't understand your request that way. Maybe you need to make your requirements clearer.

To access a Windows shared folder in Linux requires some form of SMB client on the Linux side. There are several possibilities available.

Details of how you setup and use some form of SMB client may depend on the Linux distribution you are using.
