If you want to send a file from Linux machine to a Windows machine with SCP there has to be a SSH server on the windows box since that is what protocol SCP uses. Install CopSSH on your Windows box which is a ssh server for windows. Make sure to open TPC port 22 through your windows firewall.
im going to install PuttySCP for windows.... from the linux machine is there a way to autoemate the scp to a windows machine..... i mean i need a password and everything so i was wondering how the syntax would look for that.
Yes, there is a way to automate it but it would be using secure keys, not passwords and would still require a ssh server on the Windows machine.
On the linux machine you want to run "ssh-keygen -t rsa". This generates two files, id_rsa and id_rsa.pub. You will need to copy the content of id_rsa.pub into /home/<username>/.ssh/authorized_keys on the windows machine.
Without knowing what flavor of linux you re running, here is a generic example of how to SSH/SCP without a username and password.
To automate it, create a shell script that runs the commands that you chose and schedule a job in your crontab to run the shell script at a time of your liking.
Also, if you are looking for an app to install on the Windows machine to connect to the linux machine, Filezilla is a very good app.
EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
