I wanted to ask is there a tool like FAR manager but for linux?
I want to connect from my linux to another linux and copy some files .

from google:

FAR Manager is a program for managing files and archives in Windows operating systems (9x/Me/NT/2000/XP). FAR Manager works in text mode and provides a simple and intuitive interface for performing most of the necessary actions: viewing files and directories, editing, copying and renaming files and many other operations.

Midnight Commander should do the trick. Could/Should be installed. Go to your konsole (terminal) and select a new session and select a Midnight Commander session. Also, gentoo has a file manager that does this exceedingly well.

No clue what FAR is, but copying files between linux boxes is trivially easy with the scp command at the terminal. Do

man scp
and as long as you can reach one linux box from the other, you're all set. If you can't, try having a 3rd box, visible to both.

Welcome to LQ.

rsync, sftp or scp is probably what you are looking for in order to do a secure copy.

sorry, the explanation i gave was because there's more than one software tool called far, and i wanted to make sure you knew that i was talking about the right FAR...

Use scp
