You can transfer it using an SCP client. There are SCP clients for most OSes, just Google around.

I have found WinSCP438 for Windows 7. Cannot I do it with the SSH session in progess. I don't want to enter my login and pwd in an unknown software. – Gaurav Agarwal Jul 3 '12 at 21:29
I'm not sure about WinSCP since I don't use it (I'm on Linux), but some SCP clients also have an SSH terminal mode, allowing you to do both SCP and SSH from the same session. – David Levesque Jul 3 '12 at 21:44
WinSCP is not "an unknown software." Sure you can, in your current ssh... Just copy it to your own ftp/smb/afp/etc. server. :) – Radoo Jul 3 '12 at 22:13
