Getting a file from win3k server on to my solaris 9 box

Hey guys,

Please don't lynch me for asking this question but I'm trying to get a file from a windows 2k3 server and store it on one of my Solaris 9 machines (automated in cron or something weekly) so I can then store it to tape. I'm just trying to think of the best way to get the file and I'm not sure which option to take. Should I write a script telnet into the server from Solaris and get the file or maybe have win2k3 telnet into the Solaris server etc....

Anyone have a way of doing it that you could share while keeping sercurity in mind? I really don't want to go installing an ftp or telnet server on my win2k3 box if I don't have to.

Use pscp which comes with PuTTY. Schedule a job (via whatever Windows mechanism you choose) to pscp (Putty Secure CoPy) the file over to the Solaris box, using keys.

Nice! I got it to work... Now I just have to figure out how to send password without leaving it in a plain txt file. I'll have to google it a bit and see what I find. Thanks a ton!

I can't seem to get this password thing to work I created a public and private key on my windows 2003 machine using puttys rsa keygen then took the public key data and pasted it in my known_hosts file on my solaris box and its still asking for my password.

I am trying to pscp from win2k3 server to solaris.

Anyone have any ideas i've never worked with pub/priv key encryption before.

Is it because im one user on win2k3 say bob and im using username tom on solaris? does it have to be same user name on both for this to work?

you have to put the public key in $HOME/.ssh/authorized_keys on the solaris box

(thats the way on AIX, but I think it should be the same on solaris)

Perhaps the problem is on the windows end? Do you know for sure that the windows program is finding the key, has access to the key, etc?
