    FTP from Linux to Windows


    I remotely login to my Linux server via SSH from Windows client.
    Now I am in Linux Server. I can ping to my windows client too.

    Now I want to FTP (keeping in my that I am Linux server) to my window client. Its not allowing me. It say

    [root@localhost ftp]# ftp
    ftp: connect: Connection refused

    For your info, is my window client's IP from where I logged in to Linux server via SSH.

    Can you suggest me, what exactly error is and how to do FTP.

    Moreover, I can do the FTP directly form window machine to Linux separately from command prompt. But my question is, why not from Linux to windows.. where is Linux is Remote machine.

    You have to have a FTP server, such as Filezilla, installed on the Windows machine.

    If you do have a FTP server installed on Windows check that you have the ports open on your firewall
