You can use rsync, which has the ability to copy to multiple hosts parallely.

Thanks

You could also use scp (see man scp)

rsync is pretty simple (there are a lot of examples given in man rsync)

rsync -avt /home user@dest:/home

is one example.

You'll find that rsync is really useful - it does incremental copying to really speed things up

u can also use scp.

ex. scp -r /source user@comp:/dest.

-r if source is destination.

scp if creating completely new copy.rsync if updating a copy.

^ I think he wants to copy 1 file to multiple servers at the same time, or with the same command

I found this while googling. scp multiple servers

SERVERS="user1@box1 user2@box2 user3@box3"
for s in $SERVERS
do
scp file1 file2 ${s}:/path
done

if you have more than a few servers you can use this:

if you need to get more complicated than that, check out this thread I made. You'll have to adjust the scripts to fit your needs
