For file transfer, you can use pscp, which is in the same package with putty, which you can download from ftp://ftp.coe.psu.ac.th/pub/secure-shell/putty/0.51/pscp.exe.
pscp need to be run from command line, so it is recommended to put it
somewhere in your machine PATH. I choose to put it in C:\WINDOWS, since
this seems to be guaranteed that if you start a DOS session, you will
have this in your PATH.
File transfer could be done by using command like this:
C:\Windows> pscp email@example.com:workplace/test.txt .Replace "cj" with your loginname, "calvin.coe.psu.ac.th" with the machine name, which could be "ratree.psu.ac.th", or "fivedots.coe.psu.ac.th" or any machine that has secure shell server running on it. Colon, ':', separated the machine name with the path to file with respect to your home directory to that machine.
C:\Windows> pscp \temp\file.c firstname.lastname@example.org:which will put your 'file.c' in your home directory on calvin.
C:\My Documents\homepage> pscp -r . email@example.com:public_htmlcopy homepage directory on your windows machine to public_html directory (your home page) on calvin.
