Transfer file from slack to school server
Having a problem doing this. I know they recure secure transmissions. I use WinSCP in windows so I was assuming that scp would work in linux.

ermcgrat@Slackware:~$ scp snapshot1.png's password:
scp: /snapshot1.png: Permission denied


ermcgrat@Slackware:~$ ssh's password:
[ermcgrat@grant]$ ls
bin/ html/ mail/ tmp/

So it's not letting me use SCP anymore for some reason, but since I got in with SSH how can I upload my pics from my local /home directory? Thanks!

To answer my own question a simple reverse scp works well :)

[ermcgrat@lee]$ scp .
Warning: Permanently added '' (RSA) to the list of known hosts.'s password:
snapshot1.png 100% 744KB 44.3KB/s 00:16
[ermcgrat@lee]$ ls
mustang/ snapshot1.png wow/

Last octal changed to xxx to prevent myself from being hacked :D

Edit: Screenshots I was uploading for a friend who recently converted to linux.

you were trying to copy to your school's comp's root dir (/) - note the tilde (~/), signifiying your home dir
