i'm having trouble connecting to our cluster with winSCP can i use PuTTY as an alternative?

How do i transfer files to my PC using PuTTY or some other alternative for winSCP?



  1. Download the pscp.exe file from PuTTy.org. Click the file name and save it to your computer. If you want a PuTTY shell program, download and install putty.exe as well.

  2. At the Windows command prompt, enter:

    pscp source_file_name userid@server_name:/path/destination_file_name.

For example:

c:\>pscp june06extract wrhse@warehouse.cit.cornell.edu:/mydata/june06extract.

When prompted, enter your password for the server.
