Hello, Group!

I have poked around where I thought I would find help, if this is a FAQ
please direct me to it...

I have installed putty on my Windows ME system. I can log in to a Linux
server. I can see the file I want. But I cannot seem to transfer it to my
windows box.

me@myhost: scp -p .
me@myhost: scp -p "C:\target-dir\"

are not working. The only "how to" I found said the dot would put it in the
"current directory" on my local machine but this looks like it is maybe just
for UNIX-type systems.

Can anyone offer some guidance. Plain answers greatly appreciated, answers
plus advice on the best resources are even more welcome!
