Local window as in your windows desktop..?

If that is the case, a couple of solutions:

1)If you are using reflection or some other simulator, you directly have a ftp option in the same.
2)If no emulator or simulator is used, then start the samba service by typing in the command:
"service smb start"

Find the ip address of the unix box from /etc/hosts.

Run the ip address from your windows desktop.
You would see, folders on the unix box as you see in windows(Thanks to samba)
Feel free to copy whatever you want from the unix box to your local desktop.

Hope this helps!
