Secure Copy (SCP) is a protocol based on SSH (Secure Shell) that provides secure file transfers between two computers. With SCP, you can quickly transfer files using the command line, which is often faster and easier than using a client with a graphical interface. Additionally, you can use this command-line functionality in your own batch files and scripts to automate file transfers.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your computer’s operating system to use SCP.
Microsoft Windows does not include an SCP client, so you must download one first. Heaven Hoster recommends PSCP, a free program that you can download here.
After you have downloaded the PSCP executable to your local computer, you should add the directory where pscp.exe is located to your path so you can run it from any directory. After you do this, you are ready to transfer files to and from your Heaven Hoster. To do this, follow these steps:
pscp -P 7822 file email@example.com:/home/username/destination
pscp -P 7822 firstname.lastname@example.org:/home/username/file destination
There are a few additional options that you may find useful when working with PSCP:
pscp -r -P 7822 email@example.com:/home/username/public_html .
Both Mac OS X and Linux include the scp client program, so you do not have to download a special client. To use the scp program, follow these steps:
scp -P 7822 file firstname.lastname@example.org:~/destination
scp -P 7822 email@example.com:~/file destination
There are a few additional options that you may find useful when working with scp:
scp -rP 7822 firstname.lastname@example.org:~/public_html .
