Yes, I mean scp server. I have installed scp server on my window's machine for 
the test. 
On my linux machine, I am able to get a file from the Window's machine (scp 
server running) if I use the linux scp command from shell. However, if I use 
curl library in my application code for getting a file from Window's machine, I 
got the error 79. As I mentioned, if the scp server is on another linux 
machine, I am able to get a file using curl library.

Destination? You mean server, right? SCP is generally much less portable and is 
often only a unix-thing so are you sure your windows server supports SCP in the 
first place? Can you use openssh's scp command against it?
