Note: This tutorial assumes you have set up an alias as described in this tutorial.
file/at/path to guardian at
scp file/at/path guardian:other/path
To get from guardian to local:
scp guardian:other/path file/at/path
Remote path defaults to
scp file/at/path guardian:
will copy to your home (default) folder.
If you need to copy a folder, not file, use the -r option (recursive) - you’ll get an error otherwise
scp -r some_folder guardian:dest_folder
if some_folder already exists, you don’t need to do this:
scp file.txt guardian:some_folder/file.txt
this will work (default appends to path if directory already exists)
scp file.txt guardian:some_folder
