Copy Files using SCP without Remote Log In

Sometimes you need to copy a file from or to a remote hosts. We use the scp command not only in a different but efficient way to copy the file from or to the remote hosts not logging into that remote host.

The syntax is as follows-

* Copy from Remote Host:

$ scp username@<remote-host-name/IP>:<remote-host-file-name-with-location> <path-you-want-to-keep-file>

$ scp jamee@10.11.12.13:/home/jamee/jamee.gz /home/shopno

* Copy to Remote Host:

$ scp <file-name-with-location> <remote-host-name/IP>:<remote-host-path-you-want-to-keep-file>

$ scp /home/jamee/jamee.gz jamee@10.11.12.13:/home/shopno/

Just add a ” -r ” before directory name in case of copying a diretory.
