    Command:

    scp

    
             [-l limit] [-o ssh_option] [-P port] [-S program]
             [[user@]host1:]file1 ... [[user@]host2:]file2
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         scp copies files between hosts on a network.  It uses ssh(1) for data
         transfer, and uses the same authentication and provides the same security
         as ssh(1).  Unlike rcp(1), scp will ask for passwords or passphrases if
         they are needed for authentication.
    
         File names may contain a user and host specification to indicate that the
         file is to be copied to/from that host.  Local file names can be made
         explicit using absolute or relative pathnames to avoid scp treating file
         names containing ':' as host specifiers.  Copies between two remote hosts
         are also permitted.
    
         When copying a source file to a target file which already exists, scp
         will replace the contents of the target file (keeping the inode).
    
         If the target file does not yet exist, an empty file with the target file
         name is created, then filled with the source file contents.  No attempt
         is made at "near-atomic" transfer using temporary files.
    
         The options are as follows:
    
         -1      Forces scp to use protocol 1.
    
         -2      Forces scp to use protocol 2.
    
         -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
                 passphrases).
    
         -C      Compression enable.  Passes the -C flag to ssh(1) to enable com-
                 pression.
    
         -c cipher
                 Selects the cipher to use for encrypting the data transfer.  This
                 option is directly passed to ssh(1).
    
         -F ssh_config
                 Specifies an alternative per-user configuration file for ssh.
                 This option is directly passed to ssh(1).
    
         -i identity_file
                 Selects the file from which the identity (private key) for public
                 key authentication is read.  This option is directly passed to
                 ssh(1).

         -P port
                 Specifies the port to connect to on the remote host.  Note 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).
    
         -p      Preserves modification times, access times, and modes from the
                 original file.
    
         The scp utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
    
    
    

    IPV6

         IPv6 address can be used everywhere where IPv4 address. In all entries
         must be the IPv6 address enclosed in square brackets. Note: The square
         brackets are metacharacters for the shell and must be escaped in shell.
