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.

Can you reach the local machine from the server by IP? Or on other words, are you on a host that the server can contact on the LAN, rather than being behind a firewall/NAT at a remote location (as in, from a school, office, etc).
If the server and the client are on the same network, you can simply log into the server with SSH, and run a command like this:
scp ./filename username@localIP
So if you wanted to move the file "Test.txt" to the computer at 192.168.1.120 as user tom, you would do:
scp ./Test.txt firstname.lastname@example.org
Assuming the machine is running an SSH server, that will copy the file over to it.

the local user name is root@IP address. Where I will find it? Thanks.
Rather than ssh'ing to the server and performing an scp on the server, which establishes a 2nd ssh connection back from the server to your local machine, you're better off doing it all in one scp command on the local host:
