OpenSSH : SSH File Transfer (Fedora)
2019/11/12
 
It's possible to transfer files via SSH.
The follows is for Fedora Clients, but If you are using Windows 10 Version 1803 or later like here [8], OpenSSH Client has been implemented as a Windows feature, so it's possible to use [scp], [sftp] commands like following examples with the same usage on Windows PowerShell or Command Prompt, too.
[1] It's the exmaple for using SCP (Secure Copy).
# command ⇒ scp [Option] Source Target
# copy the [test.txt] on localhost to remote host [node01.srv.world]

[fedora@dlp ~]$
scp ./test.txt fedora@node01.srv.world:~/

fedora@node01.srv.world's password:  
# password of the user

test.txt                                      100%   10     0.0KB/s   00:00

# copy the [/home/fedora/test.txt] on remote host [node01.srv.world] to the localhost

[fedora@dlp ~]$
scp fedora@node01.srv.world:/home/fedora/test.txt ./test.txt

fedora@node01.srv.world's password:
test.txt                                      100%   10     0.0KB/s   00:00
[2] It's the examples to use SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol). SFTP server feature is enabled by default, but if not, enable it to add the line [Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/openssh/sftp-server] in [/etc/ssh/sshd_config].
# sftp [Option] [user@host]

[redhat@dlp ~]$
sftp fedora@node01.srv.world

fedora@node01.srv.world's password:  
# password of the user

Connected to prox.srv.world.
