scp - secure copy (remote file copy program)


     scp [-pqrvC46]  [-S  program]  [-P  port]  [-c  cipher]  [-i
     identity_file]   [-o   option]   [  [user1@]host1:]file1   [
     [user2@]host2:]file2 [...]


     The scp utility copies files between hosts on a network.  It
     uses ssh(1) for data transfer, and uses the same authentica-
     tion and  provides  the  same  security  as  ssh(1).  Unlike
     rcp(1),  scp  will  ask for passwords or passphrases if they
     are needed for authentication.

     Any file name may contain a host and user  specification  to
     indicate  that  the  file is to be copied to/from that host.
     Copies between two remote hosts are permitted.


     The following options are supported:

     -4    Forces scp to use IPv4 addresses only.

     -6    Forces scp to use IPv6 addresses only.

     -B    Selects batch mode. (Prevents asking for passwords  or

     -c cipher
           Selects the cipher to  use  for  encrypting  the  data
           transfer. This option is directly passed to ssh(1).

     -C    Compression enable. Passes the -C flag  to  ssh(1)  to
           enable compression.

     -i identity_file
           Selects the file from which the identity (private key)
           for   RSA  authentication  is  read.  This  option  is
           directly passed to ssh(1).

     -o option
           The given option is directly passed to ssh(1).

     -p    Preserves modification times, access times, and  modes
           from the original file.

     -P port
           Specifies the port to connect to on the  remote  host.
           Notice that this option is written with a capital `P',
           because -p is  already  reserved  for  preserving  the
           times and modes of the file in rcp(1).

     -q    Disables the progress meter.

     -r    Recursively copies entire directories.

     -S program
           Specifies the name of  the  program  to  use  for  the
           encrypted  connection.  The  program  must  understand
           ssh(1) options.

     -v    Verbose mode. Causes scp and ssh(1) to print debugging
           messages  about  their  progress.  This  is helpful in
           debugging connection, authentication,  and  configura-
           tion problems.


     The following operands are supported:

     host1, host2,...
           The name(s) of the host from or to which the  file  is
           to be copied.

     file1, file2,...
           The file(s) to be copied.


     The following exit values are returned:

     0     Successful completion.

     1     An error occurred.
