SSH and remote files


I am connecting to my school computer through ssh and working on programs. Is there an easy way to transfer those files (residing on the school server) back to my home directory?

Thanks!

Use scp (secure copy) to transfer using ssh. Just use something like scp user@host:/path/to/file . or scp user@123.456.789.012:/path/to/file . to copy the file to the current directory. You may also want to check out sftp (secure ftp) it is installed as well with ssh.

Fastest answers in the west! Thanks!

FWIW, I just did a sftp user@cs.college.edu

and get prog2.cpp and it now resides in my home directory!

Thanks again!
