Hey Bev. You would first have to login to your downloads.oracle.com with your support account and download them to your desktop/laptop. Then you could use something like scp to copy the binaries to the /u02/app directory on your linux VM's.

that is what I was trying to do - follow the directions you gave me to do the scp - so I tried cd /u02   scp c:\delphix\linux.64_11gR2.database_1of2.zip . - and got cannot resolve host name error

You need to initiate the transfer from your system to the linux VM's. Since you are on Windows, you would need to use something like Cygwin, WinSCP, or PuttySCP to do this.

Do you have any of these programs?

yes I have Cygwin and have moved the files from c: to my home directory there - but still can't scp them - says no such file or directory - so what would be the syntax for that - from a pc point of view the path is C:\cygwin64\home\Revi\oracle - from the Cygwin window the path is /home/Revi/oracle

Ok. I also use cygwin. So first, jump into cygwin. Then navigate to the directory holding your files, then scp them over. See my example, where 192.168.2.192 is the IP of my Linuxtarget:

If you run your cygwin setup again, just install the openssh packages. Here is a website that will walk you through it:
