How to Download File to Desktop via SSH
Posted on 2013-06-07
I've just got finished researching this topic on the Internet and I am as confused as ever. I am not a server person (I'm telling you this up front, so be gentle) so I really don't know what I am doing.
I am connecting to a remote server via SSH and Putty and I would like to download a file from that server to the Desktop of my Windows computer. From everything I have been reading, it looks like I would use the SCP command, but what is the proper syntax? Everything I've tried from the examples I've seen on other websites does not work.
