View Full Version : How to upload local files to remote host through SSH?

15th June 2009, 04:53 PM

I need to upload files from my local computer to a remote host through ssh console. I'm not sure what commands to use nor how to use them. I think SCP is what I need but I am confused by the manual file on it (new to linux).

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.

Like this...

scp somefile.txt username@remotehost:/destination/path/

Also try sftp if you prefer a ftp like interface.
