Hello experts,
I am using an windows box and accessing to a remote linux box using telnet.
How should I use the rcp (or any other copy command) to copy some files from the linux box to the windows box?
Thanks,

You need to use FTP to transfer file from Linux to your windows PC.

Sorry but assume I only have telnet?
By the way, is it easier to use some remote copy command over ssh to copy between two linux boxes ??? (please give example)
Thanks,

> I am using ... telnet
telnet cannot copy files

> How should I use the rcp ..
you need to setup rlogin/rcp on the unix box first, then you need the proper tools on windows (like rcp from NT ResourceKit)

> (or any other copy command)
I'd use ssh/scp. you need to setup sshd on unix box, then use ssh/scp/sftp from windows, various clients are available (openssh, putty, etc.)
for example ssh (startet on windows):
   scp user@unixbox:/path/to/file .

>  Sorry but assume I only have telnet
telnet itself *cannot* copy files, some telnet clients have a built-in upload functionality like those ancient modem programs, or you may use the log functionality of your telnet client, then issue following command after login:
    cat /path/to/file
close log, and edit manualls - not the way I'd do it ...

hello,
I manage to copy the files from that remote linux box to another linux box (instead of the windows box) using scp as follows:
scp username@hostname:/path/copied files   /local/path
Thanks everyone anyway,
