Question File transfer with SSH?


Hey guys, I just got SSH working on two computers and was wondering if there is any way to transfer files from one to the other? Is there something else I should be using besides SSH? If I'm not being clear just say so and I'll try to clear things up, thanks all :-D

You can use sftp or scp. Their man pages have more detail on the exact syntax.

Check out the man page for scp. It's useful for copying a handful of files at a time. If you need to transfer a lot of files, then you could ssh to the machine that has them all, tar them up into one file, and then scp that file. Otherwise, you might consider setting up an FTP server, etc., etc.

/sigh... I always forget about sftp. Disregard that last bit about setting up an ftp server. As Linux~Powered's page on ssh mentions, the ssh server can act as an ftp server. You just need to connect with sftp.
