Sending data from one server to the other


What other ways exist, other than FTP, to transfer some file from one server to another? Someone suggested me to use 'http' POST.... is this correct?

thanks, ganninu.

In case you have shell-access and ssh.

To server:
scp localfile user@host:/path/to/save/file

From server:
scp user@host:/path/to/file localfile

Let's say that Server A is contains some sensitive data, including the file to be transferred, whilst Server B is not-so-critical and will receive the file (a text file) - which is the most secure method from the two you mentioned above?

PS: I don't have ssh yet.

If you don't have ssh setup probably the best way is to just FTP or you can possibly setup NFS. You could setup rsync, etc. The best method I would think is what was mentioned first with scp if your wanting it securely.

Yes i am interested in using scp.... I don't want to trade security for anything else. Do you recommend some articles/text?

Not sure of any tutorials but there's always the man pages: http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man1/scp.1.html

google.com/linux search had tons of hits as well, could find something useful that way.

Go to the OpenSSH official homepage and look at the FAQ and other documentation. Of course you can fetch the latest version of ssh (scp is included in the ssh package) from there aswell.
