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.

this is wrong. You cannot transfer more than one file using get. You have to use mget. If your intention is to transfer the file to some specific location into the local machine, you have to do something like:
as you can notice there are two errors: first, the complete path cannot be specified in the mget statement (you have to previously cd in the directory as I explained in my previous post); second, the two files are the same... and at this point I don't understand what do you want to do.
