I need to transfer files from my local computer on windows 7 to a server running linux. I access the server with putty through ssh at a specific IPv4 address and port number.
I've attempted using the pscp command from my local computer but was denied access by the server. "Fatal: Network error: Connection refused"
c:>pscp test.csv userid@**IPv4_Addres***:Port# /path/destination_file_name.
Either the server blocks all pscp attempts from unauthorized users (most likely my laptop included) or I used the command incorrectly.
If you have experience using this command, where exactly will the file get transfered to, I'm assuming that the path destination starts at my home directory in the server.
Also if you have any other alternative methods of transfering the files let me know.
I have also tried using WinSCP however I got permission denied for that as well, it looks like the server will not let me upload or save files.
I had a complete lapse of memory and forgot about sudo (spent too much time with scripts the last 2 months), so I was able to change the permissions to allow external editing. Thanks for all the help guys!
