The SCP (secure copy) command allows users to transfer files between a remote machine running the SSH server and their local machine.

For example, to copy a local file to a remote system, use the following syntax:

Code:
scp /path/to/local/file user@host:/path/to/destination/file
To copy a file from a remote SSH server to the local machine, use the following syntax:

Code:
scp -r user@host:/path/to/remote/file /path/to/destination/file

Hope it helps!
