This command, when run from a terminal, will copy the file "source_file.txt" from the user's OpenLab account into the current local directory and give it the name "target_file.txt".

On Windows XP or Vista hosts there are no SCP clients installed by default.  Users can install [http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/ PuTTY], which will enable SSH and SCP access.
 
 
 
Alternatively, all users can use the UMIACS Intranet SFTP Web Applet located [https://intranet.umiacs.umd.edu/ssh/ here] without installing any additional software.
