trying to scp from linux to Windows
Hi, I too am trying to scp from linux to Windows. I have ssh running on Windows (SSH Tectia, client I think). I can sftp from linux to Windows, but when I try scp, I get the following:
hostname:~ # scp file email@example.com:'c:\temp' Password Authentication: user's password: lost connection hostname:~ #

I'm afraid you can't use scp to transfer files between Linux and Windows. I think you would need to have something like winscp or samba to perform such task.
kralj,Please create thread for new questions.
Ps: moderators please move this question to new thread.

You have 2 options to SCP between windows and Linux.
1. Install something like cygwin on windows to get a Linux shell and then run the scp command in the cygwin shell on the windows computer.
2. Install a server program on windows (freesshd or ssh.com) and then run the scp command on Linux.

Thanks for replying, all.
I've tried -v option. Of course, I can't make anything sensible out of it.
Just to mention again, I have Tectia client running on Windows, not server. Is that the problem?

Disregard this message. The user didn't want to use sftp, but that would have been my solution.
