Hi,

this heavily depends on what your Windows box is capable of.

- If there is an FTP server running on Windows you could transfer the file using the AIX FTP client. If you don't have an FTP server on Windows you can still use the Windows FTP client to pull the file from AIX.
An FTP server for Windows is e.g. FileZilla:
http://filezilla-project.org/download.php?type=server

- If you have an SSH server on Windows you can use scp from AIX to Windows (requires an SSH client being installed on AIX). If you have an SSH server on AIX but not on Windows you can still use things like WinSCP to pull the file from AIX.

- You can export a share from Windows and mount this share on AIX. This requires the CIFS client (bos.cifs_fs.rte) being installed on AIX. Once the share is mounted you can copy the file to this share simply with "cp".

- A similar approach is using NFS instead of CIFS. This requires NFS on Windows.

- Finally, you can install Samba on AIX, export a share from AIX and mount this share on Windows. You can then simply use the Windows "copy" command to transfer the file.
