where do you end if you symply SSH to the machine? what path? If you SSH into it, can you create a file there?
can you CD to another path, such as c:\windows\temp\ 

what is the actual cmd when you scp to the machine? the actual paths,etc. 

why dont you scp from the w2k ? eg, 

c:\windows\temp\> scp unix_user at unixbox:/path/to/magic.exe .

why dont you upload the file to a webserver and download from there?
why not email it to yourself ...etc...etc
