I have a remote Unix machine which doesnt have SMB installed and I cannot install it. However there are some files located on that server that I need on a windows machine.
What I need is a way to periodically copy a number of specific files from the Unix machine based on a list of filenames I have on my windows machine.
How would I go about doing this? – This has to happen automatically once a day.
I'm thinking a little scheduled job on windows that reads a needed files' names in and then opens a ssh tunnel and runs a scp command remotely and copying each file. Is this a good solution or is there a better way?
