How do I push a file from a Linux box to a Windows Box? Which versions of Windows have a built-in SSH server that a Linux box can "scp" (secure copy/ssh) to.

I don't think any version of windows has built in SSH server. You can take a look at FileZilla for easily setting up a SFTP server.

"You can use smbclient to transfer a file via SMB (Windows file sharing).

A sample command to upload a file:

smbclient \\172.16.1.3\c$ -U jwhittal -Tc backup.995.tar pdf995/"

You know, working with Linux/BSD/OS X systems for so long now, you sometimes take for granted the simplest and commonest of things that you just don't get out of the box on Windows (or easily installed for that matter), like ssh/scp/rsync/etc.

"IIRC

Samba lets you access windows shares from Linux
SFU would let the windows side present an NFS interface
I haven't found any I lake but there are free and not free FTP servers for windows
I once a long time ago ran SSH on a windows box so it can be done."
