Using CLI

To use SCP throug PaSSHport, use one of the following syntax...

For Windows, you have to consider using "pscp" command. You can find it here: https://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/latest.html Be aware that you will need a private key file in "ppk" format. You can use puttygen to generate one or converrt your current private key. Pscp command tries to use SFTP protocol leading to this error:

FATAL ERROR: Received unexpected end-of-file from server

In order to use pscp with PaSSHport, consider using this syntax including "-scp" flag:

pscp -scp -i "C:\path\to\sshkeys\my_private_key.ppk"  "C:\path\to\file\totransfer.txt" [email protected]:TARGET_NAME//pah/to/copy
