    ftp is easiest. Just log in, find the right directory, and "put" the file on the server. scp is like rcp (remote copy) except that it uses ssh (secure shell) encrypted tunneling for security. It depends on what daemons the UNIX machine has available for you to connect to. ssh also requires that you generate a public/private key pair and place your public key on the target machine. It's much more involved, but very secure if you do it right.
