11.5 Copying Files between Linux and Windows Computers with SSH

To transfer files from Linux to Windows using SSH, choose one of the following applications:

PuTTY

PuTTY is a suite of different command line tools for working with an SSH daemon. Download it from http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty.html.

WinSCP

WinSCP is very similar to PuTTY, but includes a graphical user interface. Choose from an Explorer or Norton Commander style. Download it from http://winscp.net.

To copy a file from Windows to Linux with PuTTY, proceed as follows (on the Windows machine):

  1. Start PSCP.

  2. Enter the hostname of your SSH server.

  3. Enter your login and password to the SSH server.

To connect from Windows to Linux with WinSCP, proceed as follows (on the Windows machine):

  1. Start WinSCP.

  2. Enter the hostname of the SSH server and username.

  3. Click Login and acknowledge the following warning.

  4. Drag and drop any files or directories from or to your WinSCP window.

NOTE: SSH Fingerprint

With both PuTTY and WinSCP, you must accept the SSH fingerprint when you log in for the first time.
