Hi,i am working on creating a back up of my files from a linux based machine. I have winscp running on my windows XP machine. This how i need to do a back

1. Automate a process to create a date based folder.
2. Use the winscp console to log into the various Linux based devices (Big IP) and get the config. ( I have managed this part of my job, as i found the script in the forum). I need to append the config that i get with the IP address of the linux machine.
3. Copy the config file from the Linux machine to the date based folder on daily bases.

Can some one help me to automate the creation of date based folders and add this into the script. also the process to append the config file.
