My Linux box doesn't have access to Internet, thus I can't do "yum".
So I'll still need the WINE rpm (with its dependent packages) &
use "rpm -i ..."  to install

I have an RHES 4.x box with ssh/sftp/scp client & I need to do ASCII mode
files transfer to/from a remote Windows Openssh server (customer-owned)..
Honestly I don't understand why management doesn't allow me to touch
the original datafile; not even make a copy of the datafile, convert & then
send it over to the remote Windows server;  & on the remote Windows server,
there's checksum files which I'll need to get over in ASCII but not allowed to
ssh into the server.

WinScp supports both binary & Ascii mode files transfer but I'm not
sure if it does this at command line prompt (ie  winscp /script=file ...)
