Copy file from remote UNIX 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??

WinSCP should do the trick. You're not going to be able to do it form putty.

"If you're using PuTTY and connecting via SSH check if you have pscp installed with PuTTY (or download it from the PuTTY site). Then you can just do:

pscp user@host:/path/to/file ."

PuTTY comes with a program called PSFTP, which is the PuTTY equivalent of SFTP. This is superior to any of the scp-based solutions.
