scp: Secure Copy

scp filename(s) node:filename
scp node:filename(s) filename
scp filename(s) user@node:filename
scp user@node:filename(s) filename

where node is the name of the remote system, and user is the login name to use on the remote system.

scp allows the copy of file(s) between systems. The files are transferred in encryption form.

If proper .rhosts or .shosts files exist, no password will be required. If they do not exist, or the proper entry does not exist, a password will be required.

The encryption method is the same as with ssh.
