There are already quite a few topics on this issue here on SuperUser. However, I have spent the last 3 hours trying all of them, but am unable to fix this.
I am trying to copy a file from my laptop to a remote Linux server.
My laptop uses Windows 8.1, the remote server is Debian. I am connected to the Linux server via a PUTTY.
If I was using a Linux machine, it would be as easy as A-B-C. But, as my laptop is Windows... well...
Here is the command I've tried :
pscp C:\Users\Michael Storm\Desktop\Folder\public_key.ppk email@example.com:/home/mstorm
- mstorm --- my username on the linux server (and also my home-directory)
- public_key.ppk --- the file I'm trying to copy to the linux server
C:\Users\Michael Storm\Desktop\Folder\public_key.ppk--- the filepath (on my laptop)
(Just to be clear: there is a space-break between
mstorm. This forum carried over the second half of my command to the next line)
This command gave me the error:
UNKNOWN COMMAND PSCPP
So, I changed "PSCP" to "SCP", and I got the error:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname C: Name or service not known Permission denied (publickey). lost connection
