Moving files Ubuntu / Fedora Server
 
I use Ubuntu Lucid and use the terminal to access my virtual server (GoDaddy - Red Hat Fedora Core 6). Using the terminal and entering SSH [account name]@IP gets me there. I can manipulate the server then.

But how do I transfer files to/from the Ubuntu terminal to the Fedora server? I want to (using Evolution) email a file on the server to someone. Stumped.

if you're already using ssh, you can use sftp / scp to move files over ssh.

There's no such thing as "Red Hat Fedora Core 6", that's two distributions in one, you've either got a very old unsupported version of Fedora, or a brand new beta version of redhat.

That's what it is called. If I did this right, a gif is attached that shows the config. (deleted I hope)

I'd delete that attachment if I was you - posting IP addresses is looking for attacks.
Looks like FC6 - I'd be asking for an update.

There are lots of ways to move files across the network. The "best" way
depends on just what you're wanting to do. After all, by reading this
page you're copying a file from the linuxquestions.org server to your
local machine, but you wouldn't want to use HTTP for most file transfer
operations.

To transfer a few files, using scp:

scp -r /home/you/some_directory theserver.com:/home/you/some_directory

FTP is also useful at times. A good FTP client is "ncftp"
yum install ncftp
ncftp -u your_username theserver.com

To sync up a directory of files that are mostly the same:

rsync /home/you/some_directory theserver.com:/home/you/some_directory

Transferring lots of files while retaining proper ownership and permissions:

tar --preserve --same-owner --atime-preserve -B -zcf - . |
ssh user@host "cd /home && tar -B --preserve --same-owner --atime-preserve -zxvf -"

do not touch a go-daddy server with the dead and unsupported fedora 6 on it. Fedora 6 has NOT had any security ( or any other) updates in 3 years .
Would you use a version of Microsoft windows that DID NOT HAVE the last 3 years of fixes installed -- the answer is NO A VERY BIG NO -- so do nor use a Linux version that has NOT had any updates in the last 3 years !!!


-- run , run as fast as you can from them !!!
-- use some one else !!!!!
