Is there a way to do file transfers on a remote PC (off the LAN) using something similar to the unix/Linux SCP command?

There are quite a few tools that you could use. There's the Putty collection including pscp and psftp. For GUI clients, WinSCP and FileZilla are pretty good. And of course, Cygwin is also an option.

I think I'll use WinSCP! Thanks! – JShoe May 20 '11 at 11:21

WinSCP is a good one (and free). It has a console mode version as well.

If you really want to do it "Linux style", install Cygwin and add scp (I believe it's part of the SSH package).

pscp <windows path where the file exists> username@linuxMachineAddress<path>

For example

pscp C:\Documents\helloWorld.txt firdooze@

Nicely packaged cygwin/rsync + GUI tool - Deltacopy

From the Web site:

  • Incremental backup - Copies part of the file that is actually modified
  • Task scheduler - Profiles in DeltaCopy can run based on a schedule
  • Email notification - Administrators can receive email confirmation on successful as well as failed transfers
  • One-click restore - Backed up files can be easily restored.
  • Windows friendly environment - No need to manually modify configuration files or play around with command line options.
