In my journey to spend more time in the terminal and less on the fancy graphic user interfaces, I had to write this reference up for myself. This is not a complete usage of SCP, just the parts that I need that are most typical to what I need. I am also using this as a simple guide to lower that barrier of entry and encourage more people to communicate with the computer how the computer likes to communicate: In the Terminal.
SCP or Secure Copy, is quick and easy to use once you understand the syntax. I have used this in my last two projects and am going to make it a point to use it whenever it makes sense. Since I my ability to remember details can be shoddy, this reference will remind me as needed. Another note to my future self that will undoubtedly come in handy.
Future Self, you’ll thank me later, and you’re welcome.
