Shell - Transfer files via SSH
SSH allows the transfer of files from and to remote machines.
- This command can be used to transfer files:
SSH server "cat remote_file" > local_file
- This command is useful for transferring large files over a fairly limited bandwidth:
ssh server "gzip -c remote_file" > local_file.gz
- Here, the server compresses the file, the command will write the compressed file on the client machine.
- It can also help to lower bandwidth usage when downloading compressed files:
ssh server "gzip -c remote_file " |gunzip > local_file
- Most Unix/Linux versions are supplied an SSH client SSH server.
