Juz wanna know whether there is any difference between FTP & SCP tasks. Basically both are doing the same file transfer operation from remote machine.I couldn't find any difference at all.If any of you has got an answer for this kindly reply back.
SCP is done over a secure (i.e., encrypted) connection; hence the "S" in SCP. FTP is unencryted (although you can SFTP, which is FTP over SSH, and thus encrypted). Also, I don't think anonymous file transfers are supported in SCP, because you need to have an account on the target machine. Going out on a limb here, I will speculate that SCP only works in Unix-like operating systems, not on Windows, while at least an FTP client is built into all common operating systems.
