Copy file from remote server terminal to local system

I use putty on Vista to connect to remote UNIX shell. But I want to copy files from that remote server to my local Vista system. How to do that??

Use pscp or psftp, both of which are parts of the PuTTY suite.

"You cannot SCP a file to your local machine from within a PuTTY session, as you're not in the shell of your Windows machine, but rather in the shell of the remote machine.

The PuTTY suite does however come with a SCP client called PSCP. This means you can use PSCP from your normal Windows Command Prompt to transfer files over SCP.

For more information on how to do this, see the manual of PSCP."
