how to copy files from a remote server
Hi to everybody.

I am new using linux and I want to copy some files from a remote
server to my computer.

The problem that I have is the following:
I connect to the remote server and after i am going to the directory where
the files are.
I write to the console scp plus the files that i want to copy but i dont know how
to continue defining where to copy this files. I want to copy these files to
my personal computer in a directory.

Does anybody knows the exact command and how to use it?

I appreciate any help.

Thanks a lot.

Example from home to remote computer :

scp -r ./Source_directory/ username@192.168.1.xx:/destination_directory

option -r for recursive.

Thanks a lot for your help.

I assume that from remote to home computer is the same just only I have to
change the paths.

Is that right?

Thanks again?
