I'm using ssh and connecting to a linux machine for the first time from my Windows 7 machine and right now I'm using putty to access a CentOS machine via ssh.

I need to transfer some big files to the CentOS machine but I don't know how to do it, I searched around but couldn't understand how to do it in a simple way.

Can someone please explain me simply how to do it?

    You might want to take a look at winscp. It is an scp (secure copy for Linux) client for Windows. scp uses ssh to communicate. – Simon May 8 '13 at 12:56

You need to use SCP.



Use PSCP from the PuTTY folks.
