Hi,

I am trying to send while from my windows xp to a linux.

let say I have a file called "test.txt" in my windows folder, same location as my ssh client.
The I run the ssh client and connection to the linux system.  Next, I want to tranfer the file "test.txt"
to the linux machine.  I tried it with scp, but it doesn't work (maybe I need some example on this),
also, I don't want to FTP, or sFTP, I just want to done it inside a ssh session.  Thanks.

SFTP and SCP *are* doing it "inside an ssh session".

Are you certain that the Linux host is not configured to disallow file transfer?

What Windows SSH client are you using?

On Linux an SCP command goes like "scp file remoteuser@remoteip:/remotefolder", but this will be different on Windows depending on which ssh client you are using.

you do not do it within a session but with its own session using scp
Assuming that you have ssh and scp, you simply do:

  ssh test.txt user@remote-server:
or
  ssh test.txt user@remote-server:/path/to/dir/copied-test.txt
