Transferring files from ubuntu 11.10 to MAC via ssh

I have an account on a MAC provided by the university.
Currently I can access it by the following command


Is there any way I can remotely transfer data file from my linux machine to the mac. What would be the commands for the same.

I tried searching the scp command on the net, but I couldn't figure it out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

there is also sftp which prompts the user with questions but is slower.

consider setting up public key encryption.
