Hi.

You can use a combination of PuTTY for SSH and WinSCP for file transfer (basically scp for windows). Here's a link to a guide on how to install the softwares:

You can run WinSCP on core edition as well with no GUI. However, as far as I know there is no way to do it without installing any kind of software.
Commented:
1) Create a share on the Windows server
2) SMB Mount it to your Ubuntu box (might need to install some utilities https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MountWindowsSharesPermanently)
3) Copy over the file

Commented:
Thanks for accepting. Let me know should you require anything further.
