Many of you use this command on a daily basis but some developers need to know this little line of text just for some projects where they may use SHH to move files between servers.
I usually have this information saved somewhere on my Google Drive and use it only when I need to move files with SSH.
The basic syntax is:
scp username@source:/location/of/file username@destination:/where/to/file
If you are on the terminal of the computer from which you want to send file to a remote computer:
scp /file/to/send/to/remote/computer username@remote:/where/to/put/the/file
@remote can be a fully qualified domain name or an IP adress.
If you are on the computer wanting to receive file from a remote computer:
scp username@remote:/file/to/send /where/to/put/local/HD
