Transferring files from ubuntu 11.10 to MAC via ssh


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

ssh name@name2.mit.edu

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.

Thanks!

Best,
Adwait

you can use scp command to tranfer data file from linux to mac.


Code:
scp name@name2.mit.edu:/path/to/file /path/to/file/on/your/mac/where/you/want/to/save/it

the basic scp syntax would be
Code:
scp user1@host1.net:/path/to/filename user2@host2.net:/path/to/filename
there is also sftp which prompts the user with questions but is slower.

consider setting up public key encryption.

edit: i see em31 beat me ^
