Is it possible to copy folder from Linux to Dos env via dos command. I want to copy folders from Linux os over network when I fire the command from DOS env. Please any one give step by step guide. Don't tell me to copy from Linux cause it is not possible. I have only Dos Env and connected thru lan with a Linux OS.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

What do you mean by DOS environment – “DOS prompt” in some Microsoft Windows OS or good old pure DOS?

In the first case NET command is your friend – just export a samba share on the linux-box, then mount it with NET USE blah-blah-blah… in the “DOS prompt” and go ahead with copying.

In the second case, you have some TCP/IP stack installed. Most probably, it comes with ftp client, and you can use it for file transfers. If not, I really don’t believe you’ll be able to find ftp client for DOS on the net nowadays :o((

Sorry, it appeared to be possible:

    Sorry my q is not clear here ! DOS env means, I have a pure DOS computer and it is connected via LAN with a Linux OS. I may ping the both computers fine. But when I am trying to copy some folder(s) from Linux OS. The folders r shared and SAMBA is also well configured. Now I am trying to copy / access the shared folder(s) from DOS. Because, I can not access Linux OS. It is kept for separate purpose. Just shared folders r there. I heard it is possible. Most probably thru net copy or rsh command, but what is the exactly command or steps for that ! I am trying XCOPY command via mapping the folder, but it is not working properly what I am want !

    You say that SAMBA is "well configured". Is that so "well" that you can se the additional drive from your dos machine? Can you do a 'dir' on that drive? If the drive is there, but you can not "see" it from DOS, you will either need to use NET capabilities to connect/mount it, or else you need to get the ftp client given in another answer and use ftp from Linux to DOS. The syntax for the ftp command si documented on several places on the net. B.

    Hi Rechil. As you know, the more information you provide the better chances to get useful responses. You said that you tried the xcopy command, but "it is not working properly". What exactly does that mean ? Are you getting errors ? is it working but not as you expected ? were you able to map the folder ?
