to scp a file from system A to system B is it always in the form of:
scp file remote_user_B@IP_B:/path
scp remote_user_B@IP_B:/path/to/file /path/on/local/system
so the first example will move a file form your local system to the remote system (B), the 2nd will move a file from the remote system (B) to your local system.
