SMB server running in the local network

I have two Linux machines, first Slackware 9.0 and then Redhat 8.0. I do ssh to connect Slackware and everything is OK but how can I copy files from the Slackware to Redhat, Im tried with cp filename /home/Redhat but always copy the file to Slackware machine, how can I copy from Slack to Redhat using SSH?. Also I'm trying to access Redhat box in the Networks Servers menu, "Network neighboarhood" of Slackware, but appear me an error "Couldn't display "smb:///", because Nautilus cannot contact the SMB master Browser. Check that an SMB server is running in the local network.". What is the problem? , what can I do? Thanks

you can use either sftp which is like ftp but secure or you can use scp (secure copy).

#sftp username@ipaddress

scp can be more confusing if you have never used it because you have to know the path of the files (or atleast 1)

an example i use:

#scp root@server:/usr/local/src/cs_1005.tar.gz ./

that will copy cs_1005.tar.gz FROM THE REMOTE SERVER to the current directory im in now ( ./ )

if you want to copy from the machien u are on TO the remote machine:

#scp /usr/local/src/file root@server:/usr/local/src/

that will copy file from the current machine to the src directory on the
remote machine.

the full syntax is:

#scp user@machine:/path/to/file user@machine2:/path/to/file

where the 1st set is where the file is comming FROM and the second set is where the file is going TO.

do a "man scp" for the details and options (if there are any options..not sure)

for sftp you just log in and do the "get" and "put" commands to transfer files.
