Transferring files with SSH

I'm having a hard time finding a direct example on how to do this.

If I wanted to upload a file to someone's computer [FROM /home/me/file.txt --> TO c:/windows/], or get a file from someone else's computer [TO /home/me/ <-- FROM c:/windows/file.txt] what would I need to type in?

I use Backtrack 3 for my penetration tests.

I thought PuTTy isn't capable of transferring files.

You can transfer files with PSCP, PuTTY's "secure copy client."

LOL

putty is awesome but you might wanna try out filezilla with sftp might be easier for you to use...

I'll look them up.

Thanks folks.

Ugg... This is so overly complicated...

For the last 40 minutes now I've been trying to log into my own ftp using PuTTY, pscp, and psftp, but I keep getting "connection refused" and other error messages.

Is there an easy way to and transfer files to and from a remote computer using ssh and the command terminal in Linux? In a perfect world the command SHOULD read 'sshlogin username:password@55.123.55.12 upload /home/me/test.txt to c:/temp' but, of course, none of the examples I've found give anything this clear. :angry: lol

That would be why it isn't working.

Goodness.... :lol:

If I wanted to get remote access of a Windows computer without the admin's permission using Backtrack Linux, what would I need to use? My guess is that I would have to start with a scan using nmap and/or hping, look for open ports and vulnerabilities, and then do a dictionary attack using THC-Hydra. I just don't know what to do after this point.

My goal is to crack the admin's password, upload a text file into the c:/ folder, and download a file from the system32 folder. I want to do this for a test that I explained in detail here in this thread.

Why did a thread about SSH clients turn in to accessing a remote computer without authenticating?

Someone told me this was possible.

Just because a port is open doesn't mean a daemon/service is listening..

So there is no way to upload a file to someone's computer, or download a file from their computer, without authenticating?

Of course there is..

But not the way you want to..

Stop watching Hollywood movies that include hacking.. (Eg. Most of them :P)

Just install a SSH daemon onto the target host & go nuts.\

And don't use Ubuntu either.

connecting via ssh is possible without putting in a password if you do it correctly. There is still some "authentication" yet its done behind the scenes

heres a link that shows you how its done.

as far as sending files without authenticating... its never recommended but in some cases you may want to do this... the best way i can think of is to use netcat it isnt secure by any means but like i said sometimes its easier to just do it this way... ive done it before when dd'ing a hardrive image over the network to store it on another computer....

But wouldn't I need permission to install SSH onto the target? I apologize for not explaining the point of my question before hand, but my question relates to a hacking test that I'm doing for my cousin. Before he goes public with his site, he wants to see if I can hack it.

netcat looks very promising. Thank you for the link. I'll look into it later today.

Thank you all for your replies.

Any additional information is welcome.

I just noticed that netcat hasn't been updated in 4 years. Does it still work as well today, or should I consider socat?

Without permission it would be a back door.

Ah. So I need to use 'back door' as my search topic? That clears up a little confusion.

Thank you.
