    Thumbs up

    number of ways you can do that.
    here is simple step

    serverA -----> Server B

    you need to login on server A.
    go to path where your file or folder is placed.

    cd /path/to/file i.e /home/dedi/
    now copy file suppost abc.htm

    scp abc.htm [email protected]:/path/to/copy
    scp abc.htm [email protected]*.*:/var/www/html
    if you wana copy folder abc

    scp -rv abc [email protected]:/path/to/copy


    another way is login to serverB
    go to path where you want to copy
    copy file if you know the path of file on SERVERA
    issue command

    scp [email protected]:/path/of/file .
