Scp is part of the SSH suite.

Re: need suggestion for a remote desk top

I haven't actually verified this but if its in the SSH suite try installing ssh. pacman -S openssh
I determined this by doing pacman -Ss ssh first which shows you all the packages with ssh in the name.

Re: need suggestion for a remote desk top

I have already done that but I don't see it but if I type in scp I get this which I don't understand I am used to as gui
]$ scp
usage: scp [-1246BCpqrv] [-c cipher] [-F ssh_config] [-i identity_file]
           [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
           [[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2

Re: need suggestion for a remote desk top

is ssh properly configured on both machines? Can you ssh into the remote machine? There's an Arch wiki on setting up ssh,

http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/SSH

I found this helpful,from the Ubuntu docs on ssh

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AdvancedOpenSSH

you will have to edit /etc/ssh/ssh_config and /etc/hosts.allow on the remote machine to allow connections in.
Up to you if you want to use RSA key based login for extra security.

Re: need suggestion for a remote desk top

konqueror en nautilus both support fish:// and sftp:// (sftp is the prefered method)  just do sftp://yoursshserver... done
