New to SSH - need help

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
I can connect to my webhost's server successfully via SSH1 (webhost does not
offer SSH2) using Putty but I don't know what to do next. On a regular
schedule, I need to copy a list of files with the extension ".dat" from the
cgi-bin directory on my server to my local windows machine and then delete
those files from the server. I also need to automate this process (a batch
file?). I will appreciate any help on how to do this.

You might find these helpful:

Then you might want to look at scp, rsync and similar things.
Then there's the question of whether *.dat really belongs in cgi-bin.

try plink.exe, it is part of putty development tool.
