Smile How to copy the files from linux box to windows (using PSCP or other utility)

Hi All,
Is there any method to copy the files from Linux box to Windows system
and keeping the permissions intact.

i.e. in linux system I have a file with 555 permission and when I copy the file the permission also remain same ie 555.
