how to use SSH and scp command to copy files from local windows xp machine to a linux server
Posted on 2009-04-03
I am new to linux commands and I need to be able to transfer files between my local windows xp machine to an account on a linux server. The server is not set up to do FTP, so SSH connection and secure copy scp command is the only mean of transferring files to the server. I can access the server using SSH, but scp is not working. Is it even possible to use scp to transfer files between windows xp machine to a linux server? if yes, then how do you define the local path in the scp command line? This is the command I am using
scp /local/path/to/file/on/my/windowsXP/machine user@serverIP:/path/to/file
I then get prompted to enter the user password on the server, and once I enter the password I get this error message:
"No such file or directory"
I need the answer quickly
