Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

You are working as dave
dave is the computer im ssh-ing from (the host machine). knoppix is the remote machine i ssh into. im trying to get a file from knoppix back onto dave, but as you can see, it just plops me back at a prompt, without copying the files. oh, and sshd is started on both machines.
the dave part because thats the user that im connecting as.
i do scp the file from here. the deal it i have 2 machines downstairs i render my images and videos on, so instead of wasting this cpu time rendering, i send them downstairs, ssh into the machines, render them, then *TRY* to scp the output file(s) back to this machine. im stuck on the scp the files back to this machine part.
i tried sftp, like this:
knoppix@0[tmp]$ sftp email@example.com:/home/dave 0001.png
Connecting to 192.168.1.100...
