how to pull files from one machine to another

Hello

I have 2 Linux machines with a zip file residing on one of them
I am using putty to connect to my Linux files
Is there a way to copy the zip file from one Linux machine to the second
Using the putty textual interface?
If I had a visual interface, maybe I could have opened a browser, and pulled the zip file from one machine to the other, but all I have is putty

any help would be appreciated

Use FTP

Do a FTP connection to the other Linux machine and copy the zip files you want to the local directory.

For More help on ftp commands try google. It gives a list of webpages as the below.

put and get are mostly used to put files on, and get files from the connected machine respectively.

Regards,
Rahul.

I read about the rcp command
It says that I must have a .rhosts file in my login directory

In the example below, 1.2.3.4 is the IP address of the source machine
and 11.22.33.44 is the IP address of the target machine
I invoke the command from the target machine:
rcp 1.2.3.4:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/file.zip 11.22.33.44:/usr/local/apache/htdocs/file.zip

I wait a few seconds and then I get the following error:
Connection refused

any suggestions?

Instead of rcp use scp.

for rcp to work --- you need the .rhosts file to exist in the target server as the user authentication/permission is bening done at that end ...

for ssh to work like rcp --- you need to have the ssh keys created in the target server under the correct sub-directory and with the correct permissions ...

I found a very nice solution using curl
curl <url to source file> -o <url to taget file>
very fast
