Remote file transfer between Linux and Windows


I have a file, say details.txt on my windows machine. I want to copy it to linux machine through a shell script and edit the file and transfer the file back to windows machine. (All I want to do is to edit the file on windows machine from linux machine by a script.)

I have tried
scp winduser@server:/c/temp/details.txt ~

But its not working.

You have your syntax wrong.
