    Chances are high, that this linux VM has openssh installed and running.
    Which (usually) means you can copy files via scp and/or sftp.

    Popular sftp/scp clients for this from a windows platform are:
    WinSCP
    FileZilla

    Hi I downloaded FileZilla. Can I get some guidance on how to use it.

    1.Regarding the virtual server I log into, I first log in with a userid and password.
    2.Following that , I need to key in name@147.***.**.***
    3.And then I need to enter another userid + pasword to get into the directory where I want to place my files from windows.
    The first part I am able to do. I don't get it as to where I input the details for 2 and 3 in FileZilla. I tried re-entering the information
    at the same spot as no.1 but I get error messages. So I believe I am doing it wrong. Any idea? Tnks for guidance.

    Probably you do have a regular user account and the directories access is denied, because your user doesnt have permissions for them.

    While you have a shell, can you call these two commands (with your directory of course) and paste the output here in CODE tags?
    Code:
    id
    ls -lad <DIRECTORY_YOU_WANT_TO_ACCESS>

    I got the following outputs.

    Code:
    id
    uid=1000(name) gid=1000(name) groups=1000(name)
    ls -lad
    drwxrwxr-x 2 name name 4096 Nov 21 23:55 LAB6
