Transfer files or folder from windows to Unix using putty Or vice versa

Sometimes we want to transfer files/folder from UNIX server to our windows via putty. So its possible??

Its possible via pscp. Wait what is the pscp?? :P

"Its a tool for transferring files from computers to SSh or vice versa."
Picking one scenario to use pscp. Lets consider I want to transfer one file from windows to unix, So the command for the same is given below. You have to run this command on cmd

Main syntax is:
" pscp [options] source [source...] [user@]host:target "

Command for the above scenario is as:

C:\Program Files\PuTTY> pscp C:\Test.xml  hv3775@sbsdev01:/A/GM/app/script/TestFolder/

Explanation of above example:

  • pscp - The PuTTY Secure Copy client, is a tool for transferring files securely between computers using an SSH connection.
  • C:\Cat2014ZD.xml  - Its the source, which we want to transfer.
  • hv3775@sbsdev01:/A/GM/app/script/TestFolder/ - It is the user+host+path where we want to move files.
