Copy file from ESXi Server to your Windows Computer using PuTTY’s pscp

You need to enable the unsupported SSH server on the ESXi box

Then using the pscp utility that comes with PuTTY add -scp to the command line because the default sftp doesn’t work.

Here is an example of copying a file off the ESXi server from the command line of a Windows 7 box

C:\Users\rupert>pscp -scp root@10.0.2.10:/sbin/vmbackup.sh Desktop/
root@10.0.2.10's password:
vmbackup.sh               | 2 kB |   2.5 kB/s | ETA: 00:00:00 | 100%
