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.

I need to transfer files from my computer (would that be the local host?) to a remote server which I connect to with ssh using X11 tunneling. I would like to do it through SFTP, however I cannot figure out how to locate the files on my computer -- I have been logging onto the remote server then logging onto SFTP using the username/password of the remote server (ace-net).
Would I use the put or get command to take files from my computer? And how do I locate the files on my computer? Is there a special command I must use? The files I need are located in the directory C:\CBM .
C:\CBM implies you are on a Windows (or less likely a DOS) system.
Rather than using sftp from Windows you should download WinSCP and use it to login to the remote system. You use the same user and password as you do for ssh. WinSCP will give you Explorer type windows where you can drag the files from your local system to the remote one just as you would as if you were doing it from one folder to another on the local system.
