SCP between two Windows machines?

Greetings. Now that Windows 10 has native SSH and SCP I decided to try SCP between two windows machines. However I was unable to establish a connection. The following is an example of how I tried to copy files with SCP and just connect using SSH.

scp -r \d\videos [email protected]:\c\users\username\documents
ssh [email protected]

Both of these timed out. Are there any additional steps I should know about?

There needs to be an sshd running

You need to also enable the SSH server feature if I remember right

I thought the sshd process was the server?

I just found this.

Looks like SSH server is an optional feature that needs to be enabled. Thanks everyone for the help.
