Unix - Transferring Files

This article explains how to transfer files in Unix using Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

You can transfer files between a Server Cluster and other computers using the sftp (Secure FTP) utility which is part of the SSH suite. This program is available for just about any operating system; this document explains it's use on the command line implementation included in nearly all Unix/Linux distributions.

If you don't have a copy of sftp on your system, you can add it by installing SSH (SSH - Quickstart Guide).
