mkdir /mnt/smbshare

and then

sudo mount -t cifs //windowsmachineip/c$ -o username=domain\user,password=password /mnt/smbshare

cd /linux1/ISO/

cp -p linux.iso /mnt/smbshare

once transferred

rmdir /mnt/smbshare

Can you try plain old FTP instead?

@Joshua
after the file is transferred need to umount /mnt/smbshare else trying to remove that folder first will result in 'device or resource busy'

@hockland
are you able to use filezilla?

On Windows cmd prompt type:

ftp linuxhost

Logon using Linux username and password

cd /path/to/iso
bin
get isofile


Wait until transfer is finished.

bye

There is an easy to use tool available, winscp, which shows up like a file-manager with two panes, one pane is the server, the other your windows box. Just log on with the same credentials as you use when remoting in via SSH and then you can select and copy or move your file from the Linux to the Windows box.
