Smile connection between windows and linux


Hi All,

Could anybody suggest me how can i copy a file from windows machine into RHEL5 machine ? Like we use 'Cygwin' and 'SCP command' in the vice-versa case, do we have any such tool in this case as well?

Thanks in advance,

Best Regards,
Kapil Bajpai

You don't say what you've already got set up, but if you're using SCP now, that should work both ways. You could always set up Samba services, and just copy files that way, or use SMBmount to mount a shared Windows folder over the network.

Are these two separate machines or one machine only?

Debian Kernel

Hi,

You didn't say if you had SAMBA setup or not. If you want to copy files from the Linux machine to M$ or vice versa you could use 'WinSCP' for the M$. 'WinSCP' is a free SFTP/FTP and SCP client for M$.

If you want to copy using the Linux machine then I suggest that you setup 'SAMBA'. The 'SMB-HOWTO' is a good starting point.

These links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!

If you've got putty installed, you'll also have pscp available (putty's scp tool)

For copying the odd file, I go with Chris's suggestion of pscp. Samba is overkill for a few files, but you can do it.

you can download pscp.exe by itself as well but i have to say i agree with most of the other posters that samba is probably the way to go since it will alleviate some of the typing.

The other thing you could look at is also part of the putty stable - psftp.

It's a bit more interactive than pscp.
