I have accessed Linux Server on a Windows machine using ssh, created files and am now trying to see if I can transfer the files to my Windows local machine without the use if FTP apps. tried using the searching on and using the scp command but I feel am using it wrongly. how I can correctly use it or other methods (commands) I can use to achieve my goal.
Windows does not natively support SSH, so you will need to add a client (OpenSSH, Putty, etc.).
I would recommend installing pscp on your Windows computer. From there, you can use a command like so to "pull" files onto your Windows computer:
pscp email@example.com:/etc/hosts c:\temp\example-hosts.txt
This was taken from the pscp documentation: link
