I have been trying to launch a remote command in putty using the -m [file] flag and get the output putty.exe -[user]@server -m commandscript (the command is just cat> somewhere ) and after that I just get the output file via scp. Well it is not working for whatever reason but my question is: Can I get the output of a remote putty command just using the putty enviroment (without getting the file via scp??

thank you in advance

You can accomplish that with plink, which is available at PuTTY download page.

Example:

plink user@server "cat /tmp/some/file" > local_output.txt

perfect, I thought plink was just for the tunnelling sessions. Muchas gracias! –  carlinux Feb 17 at 17:36
