2015/04/24
 
It's possible to transfer files with SSH.
[1] It's the exmaple for using SCP (Secure Copy).
# scp [Option] Source Target

# copy the [test.txt] on local to remote server [www.srv.world]

vervet@dlp:~$
scp ./test.txt vervet@www.srv.world:~/

vervet@10.0.0.30's password:
# password of the user

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

# copy the [/home/cent/test.txt] on remote server [www.srv.world] to the local

vervet@dlp:~$
scp vervet@www.srv.world:/home/vervet/test.txt ./test.txt

vervet@10.0.0.30's password:
test.txt                                                100%   10     0.0KB/s   00:00
[2] It's example to use SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol).
SFTP server function is enabled by default but if not, enable it to add the line [Subsystem sftp /usr/lib/openssh/sftp-server] in [/etc/ssh/sshd_config].
# sftp [Option] [user@host]

ubuntu@dlp:~$
sftp vervet@www.srv.world

vervet@www.srv.world's password:
# password of the user

Connected to www.srv.world.
