    copying files from linux to windows using scp

    I want to copy a file from my linux machine to remote windows machine. I use the following command:
    scp somefile username@hostname:'d:\temp'
    I get the following message:
    ssh: connect to host ###### port 22: Connection refused
    what is wrong?

    Is ssh setup on Windows? If so, is your firewall on Windows, set to allow incoming ssh connections?

    Yes, as daark.child says you will firstly need to make sure that ssh is running on your windows box as a server/service. I use openssh/cygwin but there are a number of options, just google around there are loads of tutorials on the subject.

    Alternatively what you could do is use Remote Desktop to connect to Windows, and loop back to run Putty/SCP from there. It's easier to setup as Putty and SCP are only two self contained exe's with no install.
