Command Line Scp From linux(+BSD) to Windows.

| Comments

i traveling and wanted to copy over my logs to find out what was happening on my server. didn’t want to install a client like filezilla or another GUI. Using the command line SCP utility, you can grab remote files securely over SSH. You can grab the executable from (pscp.exe is what you want) then, in the command line on the windows client machine, type something like this:

pscp -r -P 22 "c:\documents and settings\jimmy\Desktop"

The “-r” makes it grab the whole folder, and everything under. the “-P” specifies a port (mostly useful if you aren’t using 22. make sure it is capital).
