accessing and copying data from remote sites?


i'm using SSH to log into one machine. i also have ssh access on a second machine that stores some important files. both machines are a few hours away.

what i would like to do is SSH into the first machine, and then from there, get files from my account on the second machine.

is this possible? or, how?

many thanks in advance,

Sure, once connected via ssh to the first machine, you can most likey use scp to the other machine to copy files over, etc. When you login to a machine remotely thru ssh, etc, its like your there at the machine locally. you can do whatever you could do on it remotely as if you were there locally on it.
