    Edit Files on a remote linux server

    I'm new to the linux environment, and need a few tips on using Putty for a remote server. My local computer runs on Vista, and I need to copy xml files to my personal computer to edit the conf aspects of these xml files. Specifically for the connections between apache and Tomcat.

    I think I would use the command 'get' (correct me if I'm wrong) and the remote file is server.xml.
    Now where I think I'm stuck is how I get the file to my computer...'localhost', 'C:' I don't know what the syntax is, or if I need to set up a port.

    Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    I dont think you can copy files via putty.

    But you can use WinSCP :: Free SFTP and FTP client for Windows for that.
    It also operates on port 22 and with the same credentials as putty.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
