Copy file from a remote server to current local directory system using SCP command


Copy file from a remote server to current dir using scp command

To copy a file or list of files from a remote location to your local system at the current directory you are in, you can make use of the SCP (Secure Copy) command in the below way,

Example: SCP file from a remote server to a current local folder:
scp remote-server-user-name@remote-server-address:remote-directory/remote-file .

As you can see the first part of the scp command is the server user followed by the address and remote directory path, followed by a . (dot) to copy/transfer the file in the current folder/path/location you are at on your local system.
