Copying Files from Windows to Linux using PuTTY 


You will need to have PuTTY installed on the Windows machine. PuTTY comes with some additional command-line tools. One is called "pscp" for PuTTY Secure Copy. This is the tool we'll use to copy the file from Windows to Linux. 

From the command-prompt, browse to the Windows folder with the file to send.

    pscp c:\info.txt

    real example:

    pscp plot-k32-2021-06-19-16* steve@

Note: You will be prompted for the password of the remote (Linux) system. You can pass that along as a part of the command also.

    pscp -pw myPassword0!88 *.plot steve@
