Problem in copying a file from Local HD to server!

P: 68
Hi,

My perl scripts run on a unix server which i access from a windows machine.

I wanted to copy a file from the local HD to this server.
But the problem is, whenever i try to access a file on the local Hd, it dosent allow at all. I discovered that, as the perl scripts are run on a remote machine, it is not possible to access the files on the local HD because of security issues. (correct me, if im wrong here)
I used the following code to copy the file from the source (local HD) to the unix server.


[code]

$srcfile = "C:/report.txt";
system("cp $srcfile /home/fdgj84/Klocwork/$srcfile");

[\code]

Now, this doenst work at all. Is there any way of doing this.

Thanks,



Ravi

How are you having the Perl script connect to the remote server? Are you using FTP? You have to connect to it with a transfer protocol if you are to put a file to it.
