unix copy command help

I am struggling with some basic unix commands.  I am working with a unix based server and i need to copy a file from the server to my windows pc.  Both devices are on the network.

doing a unix command "ls" i get the following text file:

[CiscoLMS/root-ade CSCOpx]#ls
Output_Config_solaris_SSH2.txt

i am wanting the command to copy this file to my windows c drive.  My windows pc ip address is:  172.26.26.207 (msjmjywfy27483)


i have tried the following with no success:
cp Output_Config_solaris_SSH2.txt \\msjmjywfy27483\c$\Output_Config_solaris_SSH2.txt


thanks!

You can not copy to another machine unless you mount the C drive on windows as a share.
