Directly Moving files to Linux Machines???
I am a newbie with one important suggestion from you all.Generally,I have Win 2000 machine running putty through which I ssh to the linux and work.Whenever I have any package to install I first download it to Local Windows machine and then open WinSCP to copy the file to the directed machine.
This is basically time consuming.
Anyone who can tell me the direct way to transport the file to the linux rather than passing thru WinSCp????

Thanks in advance...

Do you have remote desktop to a GUI environment on the Linux machine? If so, just log in that way and download the files with the web browser.

If not, using your browser on your local machine, identify the URL of the files you wish to download. Then open an ssh session and use one of the command line downloading tools to get the files directly on that machine. Some commonly-installed command line downloaders: curl, wget, GET (part of perl's www package).

Alternatively, you might want to use a terminal-based browser, like links, lynx or w3m.
