SecureFX is a simple executable that you can use on a Windows machine to transmit files via SCP or SFTP to a Linux machine (FTP is also supported, but you should always opt for secure alternatives when possible). I'm not sure I completely understand your question, but if you're trying to get files from Windows to Linux, SecureFX is a good choice.

im using Fedora in my PC. I have a server with Windows. I need to get files from windows server to fedora. I cannot install or change anything in windows Server. So i need a Software or method to use from my fedora.

Well, SecureFX is a simple executable that doesn't require an installation, so it's the best option you have for minimizing changes to the Windows machine. If you really, honestly, can't change the Windows machine in any way whatsoever, then you won't be able to access the files on the Windows server unless they're already made available in some way. It seems like you are saying Filezilla is installed on the Windows server, but that you can't use it for your purpose here. Is that correct? If so, are the files on your Windows machine made available to other systems in ANY way whatsoever?

If you could simply create a file share on the Windows server, you can mount a CIFS share in Fedora without any additional software. All you would need to do is execute the mount command using the -t cifs option and specify the Windows server's shared UNC path and the local mount point.

Thank you very much for your support. Currently Im sending the Files from windows server to linux machine and Get them back from my machine. I'll try to use the SecureFX for server. From server i cannot connect to my machine. IP s Blocked. Only my machine can connect to the server. One way communication. Thank you very much for your support. Ill try SecureFX. :)
