a secure File Transfer protocol, like a secure version of FTP

To walk a directory, use -r param (the -p preserves mod-times):

  • to copy down from server - go to local destination folder you want to work with, then:{{{ scp -rp user@host:/path/* . }}}

  • variant to use a non-standard port{{{ scp -rp -P 1234 user@host:/path/* . }}}
