    Assuming the "linux server" has some sort of serivce such as FTP, then you would use an FTP client to upload the files to your "linux server".

    Then just regular 'scp' from your linux to your linux server.

    scp file1 [email protected]:path

    Hold on, you said you were using PuTTY!
    PuTTY is for windows, not linux. Make up your mind :)

    WinSCP to upload from windows host.
    console scp to upload from linux host.

    That is why I suggested it :)
    Easiest to use, installed by default.

    Perfect for new setups.
