Transferring files between the HEC and a local desktop PC requires your PC to run a client application capable of the secure file transfer protocol. There are several applications available, and PC Managed Builds come with WinSCP pre-installed. For those without a Managed Build, the WinSCP application installer can be found at \\lancs\software\Free\software\misc\winscp.
