Easier to just use the shell on your pc. To copy files to the ipod you just reverse the order of the arguments.
Eg for a single file
Code:
theif519@theif519-Inspiron-580s:~$ scp something.pdf root@192.1681.2.:/User/Documents
Or if you want to copy everything from your Documents directory into /User/Documents on the ipood:
Code:
theif519@theif519-Inspiron-580s:~$ scp -r ~/Documents root@192.1681.2.:/User
Please read the scp man page for more information.

Although I got it, I took a note in Tomboy Notes, and I want you to verify if it's enough to go on for later reference

"SSH Commands

To copy a directory over a SSH

From another device to yours

scp -r *IP Address/Account Name + IP* *Directory you want it in*
I.E
scp -r root@192.168.1.2:/User/Documents ~/Documents


From yours to another device

scp -r */File/To/Path* *IP Address/Account Name + IP*
I.E
scp -r ~/Documents/PDFs root@192.168.1.2:/User/Documents


For a single file, remove the "-r" switch."

Your notes look ok to me. BTW, it is an excellent idea to keep notes like these each time you learn something new.

Cheers,
