Obtaining and Using PSCP at the NBER

PSCP is a freeware SCP (Secure CoPy) program for the Windows command line processor. You can use this program instead of FTP for copying files to or from the Unix servers at the NBER offices. FTP is not allowed from clients outside nber.org to servers inside the firewall because FTP leaves passwords in plain-text and vulnerable to eavesdropping. PSCP should work with any host supporting SSH, not just at NBER.

This is an alternative to using the http based facility at http://users.nber.org/~userid or http://users.nber.org/upload.
