Files may be copied from the IUS or a linux desktop into your HEC filestore by using the command scp in the format below:
scp myfilename firstname.lastname@example.org:mydirectory
This will copy myfilename in the current directory into the directory mydirectory on the HEC.
Files can also be copied from the HEC onto your local machine:
scp email@example.com:myfilename mydirectory
This will copy myfilename from the HEC into mydirectory on your local machine.
The first time you use scp, it may prompt you with the following:
Host key not found from the list of known hosts. Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Reply with yes and you will then receive a prompt for your password. With subsequent logins you will only have to give your password.
To copy directories and their contents, use the -r option to the scp command:
scp -r * firstname.lastname@example.org:mydirectory
