Do you support SCP?

Applies to: Grid System, Managed Servers, VPS

Yes, we do offer scp (secure copy).

Scp copies files between hosts on a network. It uses ssh for data transfer, and uses the same authentication and provides the same security as ssh. Scp will ask for passwords or passphrases if they are needed for authentication. If you want to use key pairs instead of passwords, see this FAQ.

If you want to download an SCP client program, try:
DOS client
NiftySSH for MacOS
Tera Term
more DOS tools
VanDyke software

For more information, get a shell prompt and type:

man scp

To move a file from your computer to your home directory on the server, get a prompt on your own computer and type:


where "MYFILE" is the full path on your own computer to the file you want to move, and "myuser" is your username on the system here.
