script to run SSH command (from windows to LINUX)

Hi all,
I need to run a script from an XP machine to a LINUX machine.

The script should :
1) open a "Choose directory dialog".
2) copy files from the this directory on the XP machine to the Linux machine
3) run a script in the Linux machine at the end (one of the files being copied).
All of this should be activated VIA SSH (on top of Ethernet).

The script might run also on Win_7. does it make a difference ?
Do I need to install something on the Windows machine ?   I hope not.


Thanks

1. Powershell does display dialogs
2. pscsp from putty can help
3. plonk from abovementioned package.

XP is EOL, so upgrade to Win7 and not plan it at later date.

Something like Select-File-Dialog or so. The rest is putty package.
