For connections from Windows to Linux systems, there is also the PSCP tool delivered with the PuTTY suite:

(Sorry, for some reason I had the impression you were connecting from Linux to Linux).
Indeed, WinSCP is a good tool. I'm using it as well. You'll need to use the same credentials like logging in through PUTTY or whatever SSH remote tool.
