do you want to do this automate or just manualy ??

to manualy

 scp -r root@55.66.77.88:somedir somedir

so it will copy somedir from remote to the local pc

or you can make it automate by RSYNC with passwordless backup

manually is fine but I am on a windows xp pc using putty to shell into the linux box.
Then I went to the folder where the file is at and from there type your command ?
Using secure copy what is the -r switch for ?  Then does rot@public address represent
the admin account at my xp box?  So if I want to copy the file to my xp box in the c:\ directory I use

scp -r filename rick@55.66.77.88:c:\

ommmmm it would not work that way,

because you would not be able to copy linux file directory to C:/ drive

if you want to do that you need to install Cygin ,

or have to use wincp to download file  from linux to windows

or have to install ftp server and download file

but i guess Cygin would be perfect,

i will sent you some tutorial on this
