This looks like it could be a homework question. Either way, though, what have you done to find an answer yourself? Have you googled, or tried the man page? If there's something in what you've read that you don't understand, then post a question about it.

What is scp?

What (or where) is bravo?

What is the full path to "local"?---eg do you mean "/home/username/.local"?
