Hi

I have two local servers.  1 Windows Server 2008 and 1 centos server.

I need to set up a scheduled task to copy a file from the centos server to the windows server on a nightly basis.

Im not really sure how to automate it.  I can scp in and copy the file manually.

thanks

For I can suggest a way.

Create a share on windows server.

Mount that share in Linux box.

Set a cron job in linux machine to copy every night on mounted file system.
