Upload file to SSH server

I've got some homework from computer science; one being the simple task of uploading a file to an Ubuntu ssh server.
The problem is, I just can't figure out how to do it. It's described very well how to do it from Windows, using a program called pscp, but it just happens to be so that I don't run Windows.

I searched a bit on the web, came up with this link: http://news.metaparadigma.de/?p=226 , but I just don't know how to use the commands.

Just so you know, I've never used ssh before at all tongue

Re: Upload file to SSH server

scp file user:password@host:/path

password is optional, you'll get asked for it anyway; scp is part of the openssh package

Re: Upload file to SSH server

When it's not for a homework assignment, you can also mount the server via sshfs and then use your file manager to drag and drop.

Re: Upload file to SSH server

Although it's somewhat crappy, there's also sftp, which works just like commandline ftp.

You should use SSH all the time!

Actually scp is sftp.

They're not:

[stijn@hermes ~]$ file /usr/bin/sftp 
/usr/bin/sftp: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.16, stripped
[stijn@hermes ~]$ file /usr/bin/scp 
/usr/bin/scp: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.16, stripped

They're just both part of the SSH suite, and provide similar functionality. But they occupy different inodes, so they're clearly different binaries,

[stijn@hermes ~]$ ls -i /usr/bin/scp 
146906 /usr/bin/scp
[stijn@hermes ~]$ ls -i /usr/bin/sftp 
146903 /usr/bin/sftp

Re: Upload file to SSH server

Sorry if I wasn't clear; scp uses the sftp protocol.

Uhm.. Do not put your password in plaintext in your commandline... use user@host.  It will ask.  Unless you want your password visible on the commandline, in your shell history , in ps, in /proc, etc.

Re: Upload file to SSH server

Better yet, chuck the password entirely and use pub/privatekey authentication with a passphrase.


Stop looking at my signature. It betrays your nature.
