How to copy files from one machine to another using ssh – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/10/25

I’m using Linux (centos) machine, I already connected to the other system using ssh. Now my question is how can I copy files from one system to another system?

Nice question, uh? In my opinion the best answer is “Use scp to avoid going through hoops with complex configurations to re-use your existing ssh connection” like this:

To copy a file from B to A while logged into B:

    scp /path/to/file username@a:/path/to/destination

To copy a file from B to A while logged into A:

    scp username@b:/path/to/file /path/to/destination

Instead the question is marked duplicate of SSH easily copy file to local system – Unix & Linux Stack Exchange where (contrary to the ‘easily’ part of the question) go through hoops and loops with all kinds of fancy ssh settings and port forwards.
