Hello
I want to transfer a binary file from windows xp personal computer onto my AIX server which is accessible via tellnet . there is no SSH installed on the AIX server

i know the software winscp works for transferring files, but that is only for servers with SSH connectivity but not for telnet.
how can i transfer a file over to the server which has telnet connectivity ?

Thanks.

Telnet doesn't provide file transfer capability. You can use ftp to transfer a binary file if you have an ftp daemon on your AIX machine. Keep in mind, though, that ftp is an insecure protocol; your username/password are send cleartext unless otherwise protected. Services like scp do not have this exposure.

Hi,

your Windows computer has an FTP commandline client. Use it to access your AIX server from your PC to push the data in question. Pulling them from your Windows machine would require an FTP server on that machine, which you don't have, obviously.

But you've been mentioning "winscp" - are you aware that winscp has a built in FTP client?
Just choose "FTP" as the "File Protocol" when setting up your session. You will get the same "Look and Feel" as with an ssh server, yet not a comparable "secure" transfer".

Another question: What keeps you from installing ssh on AIX? It's contained on the base installation media in "installp" format. The required openssl package is on the "Expansion Pack" medium shipped with the base OS.

Installation is quite straightforward, and the installation defaults don't require any customization if no special setup is needed.

I have a second server located in another town, which does not have ssh installed and i want to install ssh on it, remotely without having to go to that site.
That server is currently up online and accessible via telnet.
so i was trying to find a way to transfer the ssh fileset into that server via my laptop which has ssh/ssl fileset on it, which i have downloaded from the internet.

Irony?

If you don't have winscp installed, no need to do so for a one-time action like this.

1. Open a Windows CMD window.
2. Type ftp servername
3. (Enter userid and password of the remote AIX machine servername when prompted.)
4. Type cd /path/to/target/on/AIX
5. Type lcd \path\to\local\fileset\directory
6. Type binary
7. Type put filesetname
8. (Repeat 7. for other filesets).
9. Type quit

Telnet to AIX, use installp or smitty install to install the uploaded filesets.

Done.
