OK.
Presumably you have a static public IP in Pakistan?
If not, then it won't work if your IP keeps changing every few days...
So you will need to set up ssh-server on your Pakistan machine, along with key-based auth, and forward an appropriate port (probably NOT 22 would be best) on your router.

clearly someone needs their hand held so let me see if i can put an end to all of this madness.
you want to scp a tarball from your server to your workstation (its easier to do it vice versa but whatever)

client config:
you'll need to setup an openssh server on your workstation (ill leave that up to you to figure out)
make sure openssh is started, a quick way to determine this is to do `nmap localhost` - look for 22 OPEN
if you're running iptables or some kind of firewall you'll also need to make sure port 22 is accepted/permitted

router:
im not sure what kind of router you have in Germany but either way you'll need to setup port forwarding (nat statements) TO your workstation on port 22

server:
if you can ssh from your server to your workstation then you'll obviously see traffic is working as it should.
from here you'll need to set up a key pair so you can ssh without a password as noted earlier in this thread. a good tutorial of this is here http://www.thegeekstuff.com/2008/11/...n-ssh-copy-id/
if you've made it this far and everything is working like it should you can no go ahead with whatever method you want to use to transfer your files

you@server:-$ scp user@client:/path/to/logfile /local/path/to/put/logfile

a cron job w/ scp would be a good option

the rest is up to you...

In the interest of NOT overwriting the server log with the old copy from the workstation, this should be
Code:
you@server:-$ scp /local/path/to/logfile user@client:/remote/path/to/put/logfile
